MHS Calendar of Events
Yankees in the West
6 October 2017 to 6 April 2018 Details
The Civil Rights Movement in America has endured a difficult and tumultuous path. The Emancipation Proclamation ended the institution of slavery. 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. This seminar addresses the complicated road endured by African Americans. Dr. Peter Myers, Professor of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, will serve as discussion leader.
This event is sponsored by the Ashbrook Center at Ashland University, and is made possible thanks to a grant from the Lincoln and Theresa Filene Foundation.close
