The History Council hosts this engaging series of conversations with distinguished members of our community who have compelling stories to tell. Guest speakers have included Judge Consuelo B. Marshall, Chief Judge of the United States District Court, Central District of California, the first woman to hold this post and the first and only African American woman west of the Mississippi River to be Chief Judge of a District Court. Another esteemed guest was Reverend James M. Lawson, Jr., a world renowned spiritual leader and peace advocate who worked in the Civil Rights Movement at the request of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and served as president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference for fourteen years.
Our guest for our May 16th installment of Conversations at CAAM will feature Alice Harris, known fondly as "Sweet Alice," in an interview conducted by Ruby Quallsgray, current Secretary of CAAM's volunteer History Council. Ms. Harris is a community organizer, and founder and Executive Director of Parents of Watts (POW), a local outreach organization with multiple programs serving mainly women and children. A native of Detroit, Mrs Harris relocated to Watts to care for her ill mother and soon became a caregiver to the entire community.
