Narrative

In the 1950s Georgia Gilmore organized The Club from Nowhere to fundraise for the Montgomery Bus Boycott. She and other women sold baked goods in beauty salons and on street corners to buy gas and station wagons so people could get to and from work during the boycott. Gilmoreā€™s food became a symbol of her activism during that time and now the legacy of her cooking is a way for the people of Montgomery, AL to connect to her memory.
