Feb17 Community Conversation and Film Review of “The Road to Brown”

You are cordially invited to join the Phyllis Wheatley YWCA, Inc. Board of Directors in partnership with Members of the Federal City Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. for a Community Conversation and Film Review of “The Road to Brown”

  • Road to Brown is an excellent documentary with historic photographs, film footage, including interviews with those who knew Charles Hamilton Houston (1895-1950) who, after facing injustice even fighting for his Country in WWII became an attorney and spent his life fighting for an end to Jim Crow racists laws enacted long after the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments had been passed. Freedom, Citizenship, and the Right to Vote, respectively. Houston brought about change for Blacks and due to his tireless efforts finally saw Jim Crow buried. He helped bring about desegregation in all aspects of life for Blacks in the South. An informative and interesting historic film documentary every American should see.
