Where All the Magic Happened

This is the kitchen table where you can see various flyers probably promoting protests or conferences, pens, letters addressed to friends and political prisoners across the nation, envelopes and newspaper clippings.  My dad said that during dinner when he was a kid, they actually had to eat around and on top of these mounds of paper.  

Most of the papers you see in this picture pertain to the many political prisoners that she regularly corresponded with.  Over the course of 50 years, she must have written letters to thousands of prisoners all over the country.
