“It was the Rosa Parks moment,” says one man. June 28, 1969: NYC police raid a Greenwich Village Mafia-run gay bar, The Stonewall Inn. For the first time, patrons refuse to be led into paddy wagons, setting off a 3-day riot that launches the Gay Rights Movement.
The Kansas City chapter of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity helped kick-off KCPT’sFreedom Riders outreach events on March 13, 2011 with a screening for local high school students and their parents. The group watched a fifteen minute preview of the upcoming American Experience documentary before students left for a bus tour of historically black universities. During the trip, the students will view and discuss a longer segment of the documentary.
