Historic Newton presents: Making Change in the Civil Rights Era
April 8 @ 5:00 pm
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, who discuss their activism, including attending the 1963 March on Washington, in a conversation moderated by Boston journalist Carmen Fields.
