Synopsis

“Everyone gathered for prayer, hoping no violence might erupt from civilians or police answering the call to intervene. They became silent. Like soldiers going to battle. Not the Boston Tea Party or a momentous war campaign but a small step against wrong.” Thus begins Ruth Yuell’s first campaign for civil rights.

Cloud of Witnesses is the untold epic saga of one woman’s incredible, life-long struggle from segregation through equality.
