When we reflect on the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s and after, we know the names we were taught in school. But, in fact, the first leaders to press for equal treatment for all, especially freed slaves, were the men and women brave enough to in the 1880s. President Benjamin Harrison was one of them. CEO Charles Hyde and Special Events & Marketing Manager Whitney Ball of the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site join us for a stunning and eye opening conversation about the true beginnings of the fight for equality in America and how future leaders like Dr. King were proud to carry the torch from a time many of us know far too little about! Come listen and Trend with us!
