Central Lakes College’s Cultural Thursday series presents: Civil Disobedience and the Culture of the Civil Rights Movement. The presentation is at noon on Thursday, Feb. 2 in the Chalberg Theatre, Brainerd campus.
Presenting will be a panel of Upward Bound Program students and staff and Sociology instructor Scott Foster, who were part of a trip last summer that looked at the U.S. Civil Rights Trail. The trip aimed to help participants better understand the legacy of historical and institutional racism as well as the resilience, persistence and civil disobedience of the Civil Rights Movement. The group visited Nashville, Montgomery, Selma, Birmingham and Memphis in just under a week.
Join us and support the learning of our emerging student leaders while learning yourself about the realities of U.S. history and the enduring culture of the Civil Rights Movement.
