In this episode entitled “I’m Gonna Eat at the White Man’s Table”, we sat down with Clarabell Tilghman, who remembers relocating to Cambridge, Maryland as a small child from Georgia. She shares with us her memories of being on the front line marching for Civil Rights.
Before 1964 when Congress enacted a law banning race discrimination in public accommodations, Title II of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Cambridge, Maryland was segregated as was the rest of the nation. Segregation kept black and whites legally seperated at places such as hotels, restaurants, gas stations, and places of entertainment. Segregation was based on race, color, or national origin.
We invite you to join us and listen as Ms. Tilghman shares with us a fearless story of faith and hope.
