Last year, the York Daily Record held an event at Martin Library focused on the causes of York’s racial uprisings in 1968 and 1969, focusing particularly on problems with housing, health care, transportation and jobs in the minority community – then and now.

It was a great discussion, but because of time constraints, we couldn’t delve too deeply into any one topic.

Now, on the 50th anniversary of the unrest, the YDR and the York County History Center are sponsoring three forums to more thoroughly explore several of those issues – assessing how far our community has come since then and what work remains to create a more diverse and equitable community. The forums are titled, “Perspectives on York, 1969-2019: What led to York’s revolts – and what remains to be done?”

The sessions are set for 7 p.m. at Logos Academy, 250 West King St., York, on the following dates:

Sept. 19: Housing
We’ll explore the conditions of housing in York’s minority communities – then and now. Panelists for the session are York College Professor Peter Levy, York City Historian Jeffrey Kirkland, Sal Galdamez, York XL, and York Area Housing Group Director Joyce Santiago.

Oct. 17: Medical Care
We’ll explore access to medical care in the city and beyond – then and now. Panelists for the session are Dr. Deborah McMillan, Family First Health President and CEO Jenny Englerth and Delma Rivera, whose father, Dr. Edwin Rivera, was a pioneering medical care provider for York’s Latino community.

Nov. 21: Jobs and the Economy
How equitable was access to economic prosperity in 1969 – and how much has that changed over the last 50 years? Panelists to be determined.

The events are free and open to the public.

There is plenty of parking in the Logos lot and nearby.

The next meeting of the Writers’ Roundtable is Thursday, December 5. Our speaker will be Ophelia Chambliss discussing the many diverse voices that comprise our county’s past. During the discussion, Chambliss will help researchers learn about available African American historical sources.
“I base a lot of my talks and work on the West African Folk Tale,” says Chambliss. “The tale of the hunt will always favor the hunter, until the Lion has his own storyteller.  Agency, and the power to tell one’s own story from one’s own point of view, is necessary for each culture to be able to be understood and acknowledged. Equally important is at one point we allow the story to begin.”
The York County Writers’ Roundtable networks writers and researchers of York County and regional history. The group meets on the first Thursday of every quarter at 7:00 p.m. at the Historical Society Museum, Library & Archives a 250 E. Market St.  This event is free and open to the public.
