Peter Williams

Born in 1945, Barbara “Peter” Williams grew up in Pennsylvania and Connecticut. She moved to Berkeley at age 21, during the height of the counterculture, and her experiences in the Bay Area remain important in how she understands herself and the world today. When Williams moved to Spokane in 1979, she brought her broad political concerns with her. By the 1990s, she pulled out of public activism, but she continues to advocate for human equality in her daily life.
