State of the State RI

Guest: Ray Rickman, stagesoffreedom.org
Host: Darlene D’Arezzo Time: 60 minutes
This program celebrates Ray Rickman’s recognition and award for leadership in the struggle for civil and human rights for over 40 years. Rickman states that it was a most humbling experience to stand and receive this award in the same place as Frederick Douglass stood once before in the African American Meeting House. Childhood experiences play a formative hand in Rickman’s future role as an activist, with his mother as a prime guide and role model. He is far from being done as he talks about his current initiatives and his “bucket list” for future advocacy on behalf of others.
