A brick layer and mason from Holly Springs, Miss., Alfred “Skip” Robinson was founder of the civil rights organization, the United League of Mississippi. Anchored in the Black churches, the United League took part in a series of marches and protests in Tupelo, Miss., in 1978. A year after he delivered the Distinguished Visitors Program lecture at UMass, Robinson was awarded the Letelier-Moffitt Human Rights Award.
