Civil Rights in the Trump Era: Lessons from History
March 22, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
How can a thorough understanding of the African-American-led freedom movement of the 1950s and 60s inform those looking to create a new sustaining civil rights movement to defend communities threatened by new federal and local policies? Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Taylor Branch, author of the seminal trilogy America in the King Years and a member of OSI-Baltimore’s Advisory Board, discusses what defenders of democracy from America’s past can teach today’s activists about resisting threats to open society. Co-presented with the University of Baltimore School of Public Affairs.
