Dr. Judy Richardson
Judy was on SNCC staff from 1963 to 1966 in Cambridge, MD, in the national office in Atlanta, in Greenwood, MS during 1964 Freedom Summer, in Southwest Georgia, and in Lowndes County, Ala. As a documentary producer she worked on the fourteen-hour PBS series Eyes on the Prize, the film for the Little Rock Nine historic site, and most recently PBS’s Scarred Justice: The Orangeburg Massacre, 1968. She has worked for numerous social justice organizations and writes, lectures, and conducts teacher workshops on the civil rights movement. She is a co-editor of Hands on the Freedom Plow: Personal Accounts by Women in SNCC.

Darrien Johnson is a CEO of Community Curator. She is highly motivated and deeply dedicated scholar aspiring to serve in communities where I can leverage my interpersonal skills to bring a solid servant leadership perspective. As a recent graduate from Delaware State University, I am excited to join and contribute to the non-profit sector with the overall objective of edifying others.
