1960s Civil Rights Warriors Look Back

April 8 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Hear from participants with Newton ties at April 8 panel
As the Civil Rights movement heated up in the 1960s, citizens with Newton ties felt called to participate. Clips from the film “Freedom Riders” set the stage for a conversation with Skip Griffin and Judy Frieze Wright, moderated by Boston journalist Carmen Fields. They each discuss their activism, including attending the 1963 March on Washington, and how these experiences inform their perspective today. This program is funded in part by Mass Humanities, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.  Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Join us on Zoom Thursday, April 8 at 5:00 p.m.
