Among the high-profile politicians and celebrities who met with Pamela Sue Rush in her dilapidated trailer in Lowndes County, Alabama, to learn about poverty in the United States was actress and human rights activist Jane Fonda, pictured here embracing Rush during an October 2019 visit. Co-author Catherine Coleman Flowers stands to the right of Rush, an activist with the New Poor People's Campaign who died earlier this month after contracting COVID-19.
