Spotlight on… Charles Mauldin, Selma Youth Leader

Middlesex School history teacher Ken Whitlock recently brought Selma civil rights activist Charles Mauldin to the Robbins House:

“I enjoyed my recent visit to the Robbins House with Charles Mauldin, my friend and Boston University classmate who resides in Birmingham, Alabama. A youth leader in the 1965 Selma demonstrations, Charles returned to Boston last month to speak at a ‘Facing History and Ourselves’ conference at Babson College.

“I was impressed with the exhibits about the descendants of Caesar Robbins that illuminate the story of one African American family in 18th- and 19th-century Concord. Ellen Garrison Jackson’s activism and commitment to racial justice were particularly memorable and inspiring. The Robbins House exhibit enhances our knowledge of the history of blacks in Concord.”
