One-Day Seminar: Civil Rights in America hosted by St. Xavier High School (Cincinnati, OH)

March 25, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

The Civil Rights Movement in America has endured a difficult and tumultuous path.  The Emancipation Proclamation ended the institution of slavery.  The Fourteenth Amendment should have guaranteed freedoms, equality and civil rights for all men, however it would take many generations of hardships and court cases for that reality to be achieved.  This seminar addresses the complicated road endured by African Americans.

Discussion Leader: Dr. Emily Hess, Visiting Assistant Professor of History at Ashland University

Registration begins at 8:00 am
