Categories No Categories

Arlington’s African-American kids could attend white schools starting in 1959, but that was just the first step. Playing sports together was an even longer battle that played out in government, PTA meetings, and around dinner tables. This panel discussion will feature men and women athletes representing a variety of Arlington High School sports and will be moderated by former Pittsburgh Steeler (and two-time Superbowl champ), Reggie Harrison.

This program is free and open to the public. It is in the Reinsch Library auditorium on the Main Campus of Marymount University.  Light refreshments will be served in the library reception area.  This event is part of a monthly series of public programs sponsored by the Arlington Historical Society and Marymount University’s Department of History and Politics.
