Idaho recently lost one of its greats, human rights activist Rose Beal, who died earlier this month at the age of 92. Beal and her family fled Hitler's Germany. She spent her final years in Idaho speaking to thousands of people about her personal story, and about the larger issue of preserving justice, safety and fairness for everyone.
The Wassmuth Center for Human Rights will join friends and family of Rose Beal to dedicate the Rose Beal Legacy Garden, part of the Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial, at 11:30 a.m. Friday, Oct. 24, at 777 S. 8th St. The public is invited.
Boisean Don Curtis, a friend of Beal and a member of the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights' advisory board, shared a link to a video of Beal giving one of the final speeches of her human rights career.
