In order to educate the new membership and to boost the spirits of the people who had been in the struggle for years, Sue Lorenzi was invited to write a history of the grassroots movement. She read the essay, “The Some People of that Place,” at the elections kickoff meeting. The long-time Movement members and the professionals brought in by coalition-building were profoundly moved and appreciative. Not long after that Sue and Henry spent nearly two months in the North, the most time away from Mississippi since they arrived. Sue wrote of the experience of returning to Mississippi and feeling the painful impact of racism again. What life was like in the Lorenzis’ Balance Due house is described.
