New England Anti-Defamation League (ADL), Boston, MA United States
What better place to talk to bright young students under the auspices of the ADL then Boston at the time of the Boston Marathon!? Excitement is always running high over my famous 1967 confrontation and there are many lessons for students to learn from the story. More information coming soon.
