My panel is about someone who was a friend of my family before I was even born and who was like a grandmother or great aunt to me. It is a sort of political cartoon and reads, "Helene Walch (b. 1921) left Nazi Germany and immigrated to the segregated South of the United States. In Virginia, she sat in the back of the bus with my mother as a child, integrating buses before laws did."
