Author, former civil rights attorney and City of Atlanta Human Resources Director writes of her years as a student in the 1950's and as an activist in the civil rights movement in the 1960's. She describes the early Greensboro, North Carolina sit-ins that helped launch the movement, and the founding years of SNCC (Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee), in which she took part. Curry quotes noted civil rights leader Julian Bond, describing her work, "Connie was a bridge between the overwhelming number of black sit-in students and white students.. . .. She publicized the sit-in movement within the NSA [National Student Association] network , interpreted it, and created an audience for us that might not have been there. "

This memoir first appeared as a chapter in Deep in Our Hearts: Nine White Women in the Freedom Movement (University of Georgia Press. 2000). It was then excerpted as a section in the anthology and sourcebook, American Students Organize: Founding the National Student Association After World War II (Praeger. 2006).
