Her leadership, with the steadfastness she held to her well articulated belief of the rightful access of black citizens to the economic, educational, social, political, employment and entrepenrial opportunities that were afforded white citizens and also her efforts to ensure that blacks should experience treatment fair and equal to that afforded whites in judicial matters set Maxine apart. The many activities she led to make her beliefs a reality set a standard of excellence in civil rights commitment to all, but most especially to the Black Adults and developing young Black Memphians of the Memphis "Jim Crow" environment of the late fifties and the sixties.
Maxine Smith shall forever be regarded as a giagantic force in the gaining of the liberties and the creation of equal rights and opportunity for all memphians.
Maxine Smith set a difficult standard to achieve that serves as a guage for those who are committed to fill the void her departure has created.
I will miss her leadership and friendship.
