My grandmother’s first cousin, Sister M. Charlene Curl, a nurse, was called to Selma Alabama in 1965 to provide care for demonstrators who were injured.
I found out about Sister Charlene’s involvement in just the last few years, I don’t think it was something discussed much in the family back then, maybe too controversial? Or maybe Charlene never made a big deal of it. I would have been only seven years old then and it probably went right over my head.

Sister Charlene turned 94 years old on October 28, 2009.

Here’s a link to her story.

Pictured above is my Grandmother, Sister Peter (my grandmother’s sister), Sister Charlene (cousin) and Sister Imelda (who joined the convent the same time Sr. Peter did, they became best of friends), this picture was taken in the mid 1970’s in front of my grandmothers house.
