Glanetta was a quiet Oberlin radical.  She worked in the civil rights movement in Mississippi in Natchez.  She remained optimistic.  She will be missed.

It is not too extreme to say that I am devastated to hear of Glanetta's death.  Glanetta was my roommate Freshman year.  She was funny and spunky. Some of my favorite conversations with her are too  spicy to put in here, but they are forever encoded in my mind. She always spoke her mind. I did something or said something once that made her tell me I should go talk to the psychiatrist, which I did do. (He thought I was fine... )   I was looking forward to nudging her to come to the reunion.


When we roomed together,  she came to my house once for Thanksgiving  --(maybe more than once??)   So when the racial conflicts became intense in society, she called up my parents  and said to them, :"Don't worry, when we Blacks take over the world, I will protect Penny."


She and I went to Natchez together to do voter registration.  We never did get to do it, because it was too dangerous.  But we did other positive things --  we cleaned a toilet at a Black church that racists had filled to the top with excrement-- probably dog shit, who knows.  As we were going back and forth across the street, people tried to hit us with their cars....

She used to call me up on Martin Luther King Day. This happened several times.   She would always reiterate that when she was feeling hatred of white people, she'd remember me and my family, and she'd remind herself that some white people are kind.    She shared some very vivid  memories of generous  things I did to strangers we met in Mississippi--things I had totally forgotten.

I keep hoping her spouse or a child will contact me.  So if that's you and you are reading this, please find me.
