Event description

Description

In this seminar we will explore the intersection of the Civil Rights movement and the Democratic politics of the 1960s, and their application to today. The groundbreaking legislative accomplishments of the ‘60s, the Voting Rights Act and the Civil Rights Act, came with great costs. We will go through the last 50 years since Dr. King’s death and attempt to answer: how far have we come and where do we go from here?
