Community Conversation: Civil Rights in KC

Share this story

Monday, April 25, 2011
Reception 6pm | Program 6:30pm
Plaza Branch of the Kansas City Public Library

Join KCPT and the Kansas City Public library for a special community conversation about the civil rights movement in Kansas City. A panel moderated by Nick Haines will discuss civil rights activism past and present as well as what role individuals and groups have to play in addressing current civil rights issues.

Selected clips from Freedom Riders — a new documentary describing the experiences of 400 black and white Americans that rode buses into the deep South in defiance of Jim Crow laws in 1961—sets the stage for the community conversation.

RSVP here!

The event complements the Freedom Riders exhibit on display in the Central Library.
