One-Day Seminar: Civil Rights in America, hosted by the Massachusetts Historical Society (Boston, MA)

Sat, Apr 29, 9:00 am to 2:15 pm

This event is made possible thanks to a grant from the Lincoln and Theresa Filene Foundation

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. Peter Myers, Professor of Political Science, specializing in political philosophy and U.S. constitutional law, at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire


Registration begins at 8:30 am
