Marie Northrop Lecture Series - Robert Farrell: In His Own Words

  • Richard J. Riordan Central Library 630 West 5th Street Los Angeles, CA, 90071 United States (map)



Robert Farrell rode a train to Houston as a Freedom Rider and was a Bernie Sanders delegate in Philadelphia in 2016. During the five plus decades between these events he has done much about the civic and political landscape of south Los Angeles as a journalist, 8th District representative on the Los Angeles City Council, and strong advocate of social justice issues.

Join us in a discussion that will be both historic and relevant.

Admittance is free and open to the public.
