I would love to hear from someone from her class of 1964 or others who knew and remember her. Her death was covered extensively, including large articles in the New York Times and Washington Post. If you knew Sharlette, please contact me by email or phone. Jimmy Lohman in Austin, Texas. 512-784-5049 firstname.lastname@example.org
Jimmy, I don’t know if anyone ever responded to your request via email about Scharlette Holdman so I thought I would post a brief response here on the forum. I am sorry to hear that she has passed. I was in the class of 67 but I remember Scharlette from Westwood, class of 64. I did not know her personally. My older sister, Jane Goodman, graduated in her class but Jane is now deceased also. I never knew what became of her nor of her career as an advocate for death row inmates. I know she will be sorely missed. Sorry, I can’t offer any more information than that.
