Suzanne Marriott, a California native, who experienced Berkeley in the 60s with free love, free spirit, and free couches for sleeping. It was a time where many chose homelessness for the freedom. Later on, her husband, who suffered from MS and spent time in a wheelchair, connected with homeless people in a special way.
These stories “caught” by StoryCatchers, Betty Louise and Susan M. Davis, inspire inclusion and common humanity with homeless people and promote compassionate action with the community at large. Stories connect us to our humanity. The Humanities, Arts, and Media communicate Story. The result is cultural transformation. This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a partner of the NEH, and the California Arts Council. Please visit www.calhum.org, and arts.ca.gov.
