The Civil Rights of 1964
The Civil Rights Movement in America has endured a difficult and tumultuous road. The Emancipation Proclamation ended the institution of slavery and 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. Join us at the table for this compelling conversation.
This program will be conducted as a conversation among peers, utilizing primary source documents as the only readings, and with Professor Aucoin facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing or presenting. Registrants are highly encouraged to read the documents and come with questions. All attendees will be provided lunch and a Letter of Attendance.
