In this episode entitled “Breaking the Mold”, we sat down with Barbara Pinder, a life long resident of Cambridge, Maryland. Ms. Pinder shares with us her experiences on the front line during the time of civil unrest. She gives us insight into the struggles of securing employment during the early times of desegregation.
Even with the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, in the town of Cambridge, Maryland, the fight for racial equality was far from over. The fight for civil liberties became intense due to a lack of jobs, poor housing, and racial tension.
We invite you to listen as Barbara Pinder shares how she refused to give in to discrimination and not to accept the status quo.
