Hallie Cundiff (1906–2001)
Community Organizer for Senior Citizens
“What are the needs of older people? Love and companionship is the biggest thing. Not food. That’s all they need, just love.”
Hallie Cundiff, who grew up with a white “sister” who had been taken into her home, worked across racial lines in her small rural community to span the ages, from youth in Head Start to services for seniors.
