Remembering Why We Struggle: Reflections on Selma~Then & Now
February 16, 2015 - 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
As a compliment to our current exhibition, SELMA to MONTGOMERY at 50: Civil Rights Photographs by Matt Herron, we have invited CNY residents who can honestly be called Civil Rights Veterans, to join us in a panel discussion and presentation. We will look at the lessons of the 60’s Civil Rights Movement and what it means to our country’s streets, schools and lives today.
Panelists are retired Judge Langston McKinney, Civil Rights activist John Brulé and SU Professor/Director of the Cold Case Initiative, Paula Johnson. The evening will be moderated by CNY ACLU Director, Barrie Gewanter.
This event is free and open to the public.
