The Urban League Of Eastern Massachusetts hosted a Panel Forum “50 Years Later: Why Are We Still Fighting” to discuss Post-Civil Rights Era and Current Events. Guests including Mimi Ford, Civil Rights Activist and Wendy Wilson, Managing Editor of Ebony Magazine.
Mimi Ford, was fortunate to tell her first-hand experience with us of having acid poured on her and others in a pool during the height of the Civil Rights Movement. Unfortunately, she told us that the man who committed shameful crime was not brought to justice, even till his death which was two years ago.
Here is video footage of the Panel Discussion
A big thank you to Suffolk University Law School and fellow 1L student Nehemie Cange for making this event possible.
