Spring 2014 | Letter from the Chairs
Dear Friends of the Human Rights Council,
Our first event of 2014 was the January Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration, held at the Fenn School Music and Performance Hall. The performers were the Willard Fifth Grade Chorus, The Boston Children’s Choir, the Fenn School Treble Chorus and Imani from Noble and Greenough School. The musical groups sang separately and together and all were inspired by the varied and moving pieces that consisted largely of African-American spirituals. We were also thrilled to present Boston poets Lisa Lee and Vernon Robinson. Both Lisa and Vernon captured the attention of young and old in the audience.
Special thanks to the Fenn School for hosting again this year, and to our invaluable emcee, Charisse Gilmer.
On 27 April at 7 PM, the Council will coordinate the Annual Holocaust Memorial on behalf of the Concord Board of Selectman. The program will feature Lincoln resident Karen Kirsten who will tell of the impact the Holocaust had on her family. The program will also include a fascinating short video shot in Jewish communities in pre-war Poland.
We hope you can attend,
Ronni Olitsky & Rob Morrison Concord-Carlisle Human Rights Council Co-Chairs
