“Memories and Reflections”
Fritz Williams, Leader Emeritus, Baltimore Ethical Society
Between 1989 and 1992 and between 2001 and 2009, Fritz Williams served as half-time Leader of the Baltimore Ethical Society. During that period, he also worked as a writer and producer on Detroit Public Television’s “City for Youth” and “Parenting Puzzle” projects and also produced “Peacework,” a statewide media-based campaign against family violence in Pennsylvania. In today’s special celebratory visit, he reflects on his part-time, long-distance relationship with the Baltimore Ethical Society and with Ethical Culture in general. He speaks about always feeling a little out of step while finding genuine happiness in a relationship consistently marked by deep mutual respect and love.
