Lisa Shockey

Lisa Shockey holds a photo of her mother, Rosa Hereford, standing beside former Killeen mayor Raúl Villaronga at a city event in the 90s. Shockey is also holding a bulletin for a celebration of life her mother recently participated in.

Rosa Hereford was an activist.

In her earlier days, she was a member of the Greensboro sit-ins, which were a series of nonviolent protests in Greensboro, North Carolina, in 1960 against racial segregation at the Woolworth department store chain, which later removed its segregation policy.
