Giants: C.T. Vivian & John Lewis

Shelia Collins was one of founding organizers of the People's Institute. It was Shelia and John Collins' home in New Rochelle, NY that provided PISAB with its first mailing address. It was at their home where Jim and Diana Dunn we're married. It was her work at United Methodist Voluntary Services in NYC that first brought Ron Chisom and Jim Dunn together.

Shelia Collins is one of the great liberation theologians in the U.S., an anti-racist feminist scholar and the author of  Ubuntu: George M. Houser and THE STRUGGLE FOR PEACE AND FREEDOM ON TWO CONTINENTS.

Her heartfelt tribute to the two giants of Civil and Human Rights we lost were originally published on her site.
