Whitney Young served as executive director of the National Urban League and played major roles in crafting the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and President Lyndon Johnson's War on Poverty. And yet, his place in history has been largely forgotten – until now. Led by Young's niece, Emmy-award winning journalist Bonnie Boswell Hamilton, filmmakers gathered never-before-seen archival footage, home movies, family photos, audio tapes of Young, as well as interviews with activists and scholars such as Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Vernon Jordan, Dorothy Height, John Hope Franklin and Harvard Club of NYC member, Charles J. Hamilton.
FREE EVENT, no registration required.
