Resistance & Social Movements: The Ongoing Fight for Freedom
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.
