Mrs.Maxine Smith was a pioneer for truth and justice,and helped to breakdown many barriers for all humans. I am honored to have heard of her legacy. My prayers are with her family during this time of bereavement, and may God give them the strength to endure the difficult times ahead.

What a wonderful life, filled with a passion like none I've seen before or since. May the Grace of our Lord God bless your soul and your family. It was an honor for me to serve with Ms. Smith and the Memphis Branch of the NAACP soon after I arrived in Memphis in the fall of 1968. Truly, a giant was amongst us - fighting for freedom each and every day. I will long remember her sharing with us - we have no permanent friends or permanent enemies. We only have permanent interests. I took that to mean freedom and justice for all.

I never met Mrs. Smith in person, but knew that she was truly loved in Memphis.
Thank you for standing up for something that made a difference in the lives of Memphians and everyone who knew you.
