In this clip, Rutherford describes the impact of the 1960s Black Power movement on young activists like herself.
In the 1970s, Charlotte attended Portland State University, where she was involved in launching the Black Studies newsletter, Ujima, and the "Black on Black" radio and television program. She was also a founding member of the Black Justice Committee, which was formed in response to Portland Police shootings of young black men.
