ESNC: RECLAIMING OUR NARRATIVE
Society & Culture
I’m Gonna Eat at the White Man’s Table
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 her memories of marching for Civil Rights on the front line.
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 separated 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 a fearless story of faith and hope with us.
