Rosa Gibson: Community Action Information Center

A couple weeks ago I talked with Rosa Gibson, one of this city’s great community activists, and I was reminded of this short piece we did on her and her Community Action Information Center last year. Seemed worth pulling out of the archives:

    I’ve long admired Rosa’s persistence in battling for her neighborhood & in challenging those with political power.

    Ironically, she is unlikely to see this post & video because while young-at-heart at age 75 (older?) . . she is stubborningly old-fashioned in some areas. It took years of cajoling to get her to use a FAX machine . . . & she continues to avoid the Internet.

    If anybody has more influence withn her than I do from far-away Mpls, please work on her to take the next step. I know she would love the Internet . . perhaps even continue her activism online if her threats of retiring actually ever happen . . . once she finally ‘connects’!
