Isabella Lawrence, 22, has attended to several anti-racism protests in San Diego County over the last few weeks. Last Sunday, her grandfather joined her at a rally in Santee.
There, Richard Lawrence, 83, spoke about marching in Selma, Alabama in 1965 with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
"The tide has turned in this country. And if we stay on our feet and stay alive, we will see to it that the tide stays out on injustice," Lawrence said at the rally in Santee.
Selma was just one of many marches, protests and actions Lawrence was involved in during the Civil Rights movement.
As part of our "First Person" series, Isabella spoke to her grandfather about the current protest movement and how it compares to the movement in the 60s.
