Lucille Green Otto Obituary
Lucy Green Otto was "a woman ahead of her time," said her daughter Angele Green Johnson, of Atlanta.
Green Otto became involved in the NAACP in Cincinnati in the 1950s, registering people to vote.
In 1963, she coordinated the Cincinnati effort for the March on Washington, and during the march from Selma to Montgomery in 1965, she was arrested with Martin Luther King Jr. and other civil rights activists.
"When we were growing up many of the civil rights leaders, including Martin Lither King and Reverend (Joseph) Lowery, were in our house planning meetings," said Green Johnson. "Our house was kind of like ground zero for the planning of the Civil Rights movement out of Cincinnati."
Lucille Green Otto, of Atlanta, died June 25 of natural causes. She was 88. Read the news obituary
