North Carolina's Long Civil Rights Movement
The 1950's and '60's were years of dramatic social change in America, led by a civil rights movement that re-defined our institutions, our thinking and how we would move forward as a country. But what role did the civil rights movement play in North Carolina? How did the events here shape change locally and nationally?
Kenneth Zogry, Ph.D, Historian and Museum Consultant presents “North Carolina’s Long Civil Rights Movement." Dr. Zogry is sponsored by the North Carolina Humanities Council’s Road Scholars program. This project is made possible by a grant from the North Carolina Humanities Council, a statewide nonprofit and affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
