IN MEMORIAM: Dr. Ollye Brown Shirley

From Dr. Wilma Mosley Clopton:

I will truly miss you. Share with me a moment in the life of this remarkable woman, Dr. Ollye Brown Shirley, whose story she shares in “In Spite of It All.”

Dr. Clopton’s statement as reported by Howard Ballou on

“Ollye Brown Shirley was anything but afraid,” said Dr. Wilma Mosley Clopton, who documented Shirley’s life in a film. “Her strength was not measured by the noise of the moment, but by the sound of her voice during the silence when others had forgotten.”
