Civic Dialogue: The Future of the Civil Rights Movement

Apr 24th, 2017 7:00pm - Apr 24th, 2017 8:00pm

Hampton History Museum
Free and open to the public

Join Hampton University history professor Robert Watson for “The Future of the Civil Rights Movement,” the third and final in a series of “Civic Dialogues” soliciting public input on the past, present and future of the Civil Rights Movement in Hampton Roads, on Monday, April 24, 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. “The pressing issue here cuts two ways. First, community input will help spell out how the movement can be sustained through actions for positive social change, what strategies can be adopted from the past for the future, and what sort of education and outreach is needed to engage the next generation.  Second, the audience will be challenged to answer how the civil rights movement can be sustained through memory work and cultural transmission,” says Watson
