“The Civil Rights Kid”: A presentation by Ray Rickman at William Hall Library, Cranston

Join Ray Rickman in a tour-de-force presentation as he takes you on his quest for civil rights, from the 1966 “March Against Fear” in Mississippi with James Meredith, where he almost lost his life at the hands of the local sheriff, to taking on the Detroit School Department, to working side-by-side with Rosa Parks. It’s a story like no other, filled with courage, hope, humor, and abiding faith.

The event will be held on Wednesday, April 3, 2024, 6:30pm – 7:30pm at the William Hall Library, 1825 Broad St, in Cranston.

The event is free and open to the public. Registration is not required, and email reminders will be sent. Contact: Zach Berger; 401-781-2450; [email protected]
