Some people gave their lives and careers,” says Robert Houston, discussing the battle for equality during the American civil rights movement in an interview with WJZ. Robert Houston is one of ten storytellers involved in the CADVC community outreach project, For All the World to Hear: Stories from the Struggle for Civil Rights, and one of a number of people, including project coordinator Sandra Abbott of the CADVC, interviewed in a segment for CBS Baltimore.
