Tilly, Dorothy Rogers, 1883-1970
"One of the unheralded trailblazers of the civil rights movement, Dorothy Rogers Tilly devoted her entire adult life to reforming southern race relations. Her extensive career as an activist, organizer, and mentor forged a link between the reform efforts of the early twentieth century and the modern civil rights movement."--"Dorothy Rogers Tilly (1883-1970)," New Georgia Encyclopedia.
