“Learn the reality from those who live the reality.”
Mary Wright was transformed by the political demonstrations she experienced on her college campus in the late ’60s. She saw firsthand how media reports and political statements didn’t match up with what she witnessed. And ever since then she has been traveling the world seeking to understand how others live, not only in poverty, but in political oppression.
