Lula T. George
Lula T. George was born in South Carolina and moved to Camilla, Georgia as a teen. When she graduated an honor student, George attended Albany State College, where as a wife and mother of a new born, she participated in the Albany Civil Rights Movement. On the day of her arrest, things started normally, George dropped off her new born with her mother-in-law and went to campus. Once she heard about plans for a march the spirit to participate overcame George and she had to go. While in jail, she was nurse to many of her fellow students because she came with needed supplies in her purse. She remained in jail until her mother-in-law put up her property as bail. George was so prepared for the struggles that civil rights work presented, that even when she was suspended from Albany State College, she managed to graduate on time. The movement has long since ended for her, but Miss Lula can always be found helping others in her community because the activist spirit is still part of her soul.
