San Rafaels Debra Warren, pictured, wasnt even born when her late grandfather, Earl Warren, had a hand in civil rights history. The man she knew as Papa Warren had a part in the unanimous decision in Brown v. Board of Education, the landmark case that ruled racial segregation in public schools was unconstitutional, during his time as the 14th chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.

She discusses her grandfather with playwright Cindy Acker in a short video at 1 p.m. Sunday on Zoom, which precedes an online performance of Ackers play about the landmark decision, Words That Made the Difference. Marin actor and poet Charselle Hooper and Novato preschool teacher Gloria Cunha are among the plays participants. A Q&A with Acker and Itoco Garcia, superintendent of Sausalito Marin City School District, will follow.

Donations recommended. Register at unityinmarin.churchcenter.com/registrations/events/631559.
