Civil Rights Legacy: The Struggle Towards Equality from Slavery to Present Day

Civil Rights Legacy Series: The Struggle Towards Equality from Charleston to Memphis

October 23 to November 2, 2021

Deadline to register July 13, 2021


The “deep south” plays a leading part in the history of race relations in the United States. Many here take great pride in a unique heritage marked by “southern hospitality” and industriousness. Yet, so many of the region’s contributions to American prosperity were achieved through slavery or despite legal frameworks for segregation persisting into the 1960’s. As local communities grapple with difficult lessons of the past, many issues around race remain unresolved. The struggle for Civil Rights was staged across the south, but the pursuit of justice continues across the country.
