Alexei Romanoff: The 1967 Black Cat Protest

Alexei Romanoff and David Farah talk about the 1967 Black Cat protest. Alexei helped to organize the protest and is the last known living person who was there. They discuss the New Year's Eve police raid that lead to the protest, the planning that went into it, and while they lost a trial, it was the first time in history that a lawyer argued that gay and lesbian people are equal under the constitution.
