About Miss Marilyn

“We’ve got to change our attitudes, and if we’re going to change our attitudes, we’ve got to change our actions.”

Miss Marilyn, a native Shelbyvillian, is a retired public elementary school teacher who taught in Shelbyville for 34 years. She often draws parallels between the civil rights movement – in which she was very involved in the 1960s – and the experience of immigrants today.
