Memories+Moments – 1968: The Local Civil Rights Movement

The discussion will focus on the pivotal year 1968, and panelists will share their individual, first-hand experiences with local civil rights events. The panel will be moderated by Dr. Zach Schrag, Professor of History, Department of History & Art History at Mason. The event will be recorded and added to SCRC’s Oral History Program collection.
