Here is a taste:

Sansone chose Main Street in Reading for the location (wants to change a portion of a street name in Reading to Tolerance Way) due to terrible racist incident that he remembered occurring there during his childhood, one that involved a hero of his, Boston Celtic legend Bill Russell, a former Reading resident. “I started thinking about my first experience regarding people of another race that really stood out,” writes Sansone. “It wasn't a personal experience but a story I heard as a child that made me very sad. It was about the awful hatred that former Boston Celtic legend Bill Russell faced in Boston and specifically Reading during his career in the 50's and 60's. Bigots broke into his Reading home and put racist graffiti on his walls and defecated on his bed because of his skin color. Then when he tried to move from his home to a new home across town, some neighbors filed a petition trying to block the move. When that failed, other neighbors banded together to try to purchase the home that Russell wanted to buy. I subsequently learned that white security guards at the Boston Garden would actually ask Mr. Russell for his identification before allowing him into the building before his Celtic games. This was after he already won two NCAA Championships for the University of San Francisco, a Gold Medal for the USA in the 1956 Olympics and NBA Championships in Boston. How humiliating!”
