Personal Experiences from Local Civil Rights Activists


Six long-time Montgomery County residents whose activism on civil rights and social justice issues played key roles in the Civil Rights movement in the County are featured in a special video that was part of the Black History Month Commemoration hosted by the County Council on February 24.

Christine "Tina" Clarke, Warren Crutchfield, Ruby Reese Moone, James Offord, Odessa Shannon and Harvey Zeigler were among those sharing their historical experiences with councilmembers, invited guests and the public.

County Cable Montgomery producer/editor Barbara Grunbaum and videographer Mike Springirth compiled the recollections into the 14-minute video entitled “A Century of Black Life History and Culture in Montgomery County, Maryland.”
