Wordless Wednesday: Bill Greene in the Newspaper

During the first half of Black History Month, ProQuest opened up its Black History Collection for those interested in researching their database.  I found this article in the paper of my Godfather Bill Greene, who had been a Freedom Rider, A fighter for justice, and California State Legislature for 25 years.  He died in December 2002 at the age of 72.

Photo of my mother Betty Mae Peters in Danbury, Connecticut at Marian Anderson’s home in 1942. Marian’s home was called Marianna Farm. Betty was on the Pier of the pool and you can see Marian Anderson’s Studio in the background. Betty was 16 years old at the time.
