Lasting Friendships

"Everybody told us our lives would be in danger," Aviva Futorian told the Associated Press. The 76-year-old attorney, who attended a Freedom School, befriended Roy DeBerry during the summer of 1964. "I probably didn't have as much trepidation as I should have. Because it's hard to imagine your own death." (Photo: AP Photo/M. Spencer Green)
