Mayor Marion Barry was born on March 6, 1936 in Itta Bena, Mississippi. Barry grew up in Memphis, Tennessee, where he helped desegregate the buses in 1958. Barry subsequently abandoned his doctoral studies in chemistry at the University of Tennessee to join the Civil Rights Movement full-time. Barry was elected the first chairman of SNCC and came to Washington, D.C. in 1965 to open a local chapter.
