Judy was featured in a book called Americans Who Tell The Truth, which is an exhibition created by Maine artist, Robert Shetterly, of 50 oil portraits of people such as Martin Luther King Jr., Noam Chomsky, Amy Goodman, Cesar Chaves, Mark Twain, Chief Joseph, Wendell Berry and 43 others.
Shetterly said of his subjects that they "allowed me to draw strength from this community of truth tellers, finding in them the courage, honesty, tolerance, generosity, wisdom and compassion that have made our country strong." These historical and present-day Americans have dared to speak out about important subjects such as democracy, war and peace, the environment, the rights of women, racial injustice, media and our countrys role in the world.
