An Interview with Dr. Helena Hicks, a Civil Rights Icon

By BillyClub - Posted on 08 February 2012

On February 7, 2012, I interviewed Dr. Helena Hicks at her home in West Baltimore. She discussed her role in the historic 1955 Civil Rights sit-in at Reads Drug Store, at Howard & Lexington Streets. At the time, Dr. Hicks was a senior at Morgan State College. Special thanks to Sharon Black and Rev. Cortly CD Witherspoon for arranging the interview.
