Legendary western Massachusetts-based activist Frances Crowe is celebrating her 100th birthday Friday.

To honor her long-time advocacy for peace, nuclear disarmament, civil rights, and clean energy, a series of events are scheduled in Northampton, where Crowe has lived since the 1950s.

The tributes begin, fittingly, with a march on Saturday.

WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthil spoke with one of the organizers Claudia Lefko.
