Brenda Travis

Brenda Travis was born a sharecropper’s daughter in 1945 in McComb, Mississippi. At an early age, she joined in NAACP and SNCC sit-ins and voting rights activism in her hometown. Arrested and jailed, she was banished to a reform school and then legally exiled from the state. Over the years Brenda has continued her activism. She is now retired in Apple Valley, California, but she created a foundation in McComb to teach civil rights history and self awareness to today’s youth, so she spends part of every year back in McComb, where she has been honored with a street named after her. She speaks widely to schools and groups about her historical experiences as a 1960s civil rights activist.
