Victoria Gray Adams

Mrs. Victoria Gray Adams

Victoria Gray Adams, a business woman, landowner, and African American civil rights leader from Hattiesburg, Mississippi, liked to think of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) as the "enfleshened church."  Gray saw the Civil Rights Movement as "a journey toward the establishment of the kingdom of God," and as a journey she felt called to make.
