Cambridge Mayor Victoria Jackson-Stanley

Victoria Jackson-Stanley, who is the current and first African American or female Mayor of Cambridge, was only a child when Gloria Richardson was active in the civil rights movement in Cambridge. But she has vivid recollections of the woman who she says, “made me who I am today.” In this interview, she talks with Marc about her experiences growing up in Cambridge, her memories of the movement and how it changed her life.
