A Place to Become: Montclair Through the Eyes of the Glenridge Avenue YWCA Women (1920-1965)

Produced by the Montclair Historical Society, A Place to Become explores early 20th century Montclair through the eyes of eight women who attended the YWCA. They tell the stories of African American women and girls – and the role of the YWCA – in a town grappling with de facto segregation, integration, and the Civil Rights Movement. An Allison Shillingford production.  Meet in the Founder’s Room of the Crane House & Historic YWCA. Become a member today and watch the film for free!
