Actor to speak at Civil Rights Gala

November 11, 2004

Albany- If you attend the Albany Civil Rights Movement Museum's annual gala tomorrow night, you'll get to meet a famous actor.

Robert Hooks worked on Broadway for years and had roles in dozens of movies and television shows. He says the country still struggles with treating all people equally and it's important to support civil rights museums.

"We are still living in a society that is a segregated society and certainly a society that discriminates against other minorities," Hooks said.

The museum fundraiser is tomorrow at 7 p.m. at Albany Technical College.
