Hudson ’60s activists share their stories
The Hudson Area Library will host a meeting Thursday, Feb. 4, at 6 p.m., that will be a “show and tell” for people living in and around Hudson who were active in the civil rights movement in the 1960s or for those who wish to learn about it.
To reserve a place, call the library at 828-1792.
The event is a preface to a one-woman performance based on the 2015 memoir, “Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom: My Story of the 1965 Selma Voting Rights March” by Lynda Blackmon Lowery. She was jailed nine times before her 15th birthday as a result of her participation in voting rights marches.
The performance will be 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 13, at M.C. Smith Intermediate School, 102 Harry Howard Ave., Hudson.
The Hudson High School Choir will open the event by performing songs from the civil rights era and the show which stars actress Damaras Obi.
The suggested donation is $10 for adults and free for children under the age of 12. All tickets will be sold at the door. Proceeds will benefit the Hudson Area Library.
