Join us for an insightful journey through one of our nation's most turbulent, fierce, and inspirational periods in history. The program is presented in conjunction with the nationally-acclaimed exhibition, 381 Days: The Montgomery Bus Boycott Story, which chronicles the hardship and courage of thousands of African-Americans who successfully challenged a segregated bus system to open its doors to equality. After touring the exhibit, Dr. Manning Marable, one of America's most influential and widely-read scholars, explores the history of the civil rights era and its lessons for current movements struggling for equality. Marable is a Professor of Public Affairs, Political Science, and History at Columbia University in New York City.
