Hillary Clinton Mourns Passing Of Arkansas Civil Rights Pioneer

 I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Mary Brown Williams Ledbetter, a fierce champion for women’s rights, civil rights, and the right of all Americans to education and opportunity. Brownie, as she was universally known, was one of those tireless citizen activists who set out to improve their community and end up helping change the world. She began as a concerned volunteer in the struggle to desegregate the schools of Little Rock, and became an accomplished advocate for the rights of Arkansans and people everywhere. I was fortunate to call Brownie my friend, and I will remember her not just for life-long work to advance social justice, but also for her warmth, humor, and humanity. My thoughts and prayers are with her husband Cal Ledbetter and their wonderful family.

 
Hillary Rodham Clinton
Secretary of State
Washington, DC
