Clemson Master of Science in Youth Development graduate Kimberly Johnson’s book helped lead to this week’s historic overturning of the convictions of the “Friendship 9,” who were arrested 54 years ago for sitting at a whites-only lunch counter in Rock Hill. Kimberly wrote a children’s book about the Friendship 9 and brought the situation to the attention of the local solicitor, leading to the court’s action.
