Marching for Social Justice

It was while he was living in the Cleveland area that Dr. Benjamin Spock became an activist for social justice causes, sometimes to the dismay of his medical colleagues at Western Reserve University. Here, on September 27, 1963, he marches down East Sixth Street in front of the Cleveland Board of Education Building, protesting segregation in the Cleveland Schools. According to Marvin Rosenberg, the twins' father who was active in the anti-nuclear arms movement of the early 1960s, he believes that he significantly contributed to Spock's decision to become an activist for such causes in this period.
