Persistence and patience. That is what’s needed to affect change. That is the lesson
Dave Dennis learned at his grandmother’s knee.
Dennis, 76, is a veteran of the civil rights movement. His mother cooked for whites
in Louisiana; his father picked cotton. Dennis became a leader in the Congress for
Racial Equality, or CORE, and participated in the Mississippi Freedom Summer of 1964.
