Spinks, Eberta, 1914-


In 1964, Mrs. Spinks became active in the civil rights movement. She housed civil rights workers in her home, integrated the restaurant of the Pinehurst Hotel (for which she was jailed), and held civil rights education sessions in her home to teach people how to register to vote. She was a member of both COFO and the NAACP. Although her life was threatened as a result of this work, Mrs. Spinks was steadfast in her struggle for equal rights.
