Interview with Efia Nwangaza, human rights lawyer and prison advocate


Part of a serie of interviews done in November 2013 with women who were activists during the Civil Rights Movement in the American South in the1960s. Realized by Rose Marie Whalley, host of Older women live on CKUT, and edited and mixed in collaboration with Laura Yaros. 2013 marked the 50th anniversary of several crucial events in the struggle for civil rights for Afro Americans. Although the names of Martin Luther King and his colleagues are known to every child in North America, the names of women remain unknown. Who were some of these women and how did the struggle for justice shape their lives? The women at the center of this serie devoted their lives to the ongoing struggle for justice: their contribution deserves to be acknowledged. Mrs. Nwangaza is a founding member of SNCC (Student non-violent co-ordinating committee)
