Building on the Legacy of 1963
As a child, Freeman Hrabowski and hundreds of other Birmingham children joined a groundswell of people challenging the city's strict code of segregation. Graduating from Hampton Institute at age 19 and earning the Ph.D from the University of Illinois at age 24, Dr. Hrabowski went on to gain world-wide acclaim in higher education. In this inspirational address, Dr. Hrabowski offers his eyewitness account of the 1963 Birmingham Campaign and challenges educators to pass on its legacy and lessons to future generations.
