    Panel Discussion—Civil Rights Activism Past and Present

    Part of the series Created Equal: The Civil Rights Movement Then and Now. Activism took many forms in the sixties, as it does today. Hear stories of people who fought for equality then – from Freedom Riders to local residents – and their discussion about the successes and failures of the Civil Rights movement. Join in the discussion with your own stories and thoughts about how we can apply these lessons to the present and future. Panelists include Paul Breines (Freedom Rider), Katherine Butler Jones (METCO founder and director), Walter Carrington (Commissioner 1957-1961, MA Commission Against Discrimination), and Henry Brown (1963 NAACP Northern City Protest Demonstration Leader). Co-sponsored by the Newton Human Rights Commission, Myrtle Baptist Church, and the Newton Department of Senior Services.
