This is the speech that my son Kumar Viswanathan gave at the award ceremony of the European Civil Rights Prize in Berlin at the German Foreign Ministry.

The prize went to 18 Ostrava Roma children- now youth- for their courageous fight against segregation and right to education. The European court for Human Rights at Strasbourg made a historical judgement that is often compared to the Brown vs the Education Board of the black civil rights movement.Please open the link below for the speech.
