OCTOBER 14, 2021
STRIKE A WOMAN? STRIKE A ROCK!
THE ROLE OF WOMEN IN THE CIVIL AND HUMAN RIGHTS MOVEMENTS

Women have always been central to any activity focused on civil and human rights. The title of this event is inspired by a South African women's slogan that was especially taken up during the fight against apartheid which was defeated by a united worldwide people's movement largely led by women and girls. Mrs. Coretta Scott King and a diverse array of other women's contributions will be highlighted. Women on the front lines of the civil and human rights movements of today will be leading this event.

 

Note: The meeting will be in-person and Zoom. See the event page on Facebook for more information: https://fb.me/e/2vDS4SWln

 

The MLK Freedom School will consist of four speaker panel events (Zoom and In-Person) in the Fall of 2021.

The MLK Freedom School is in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Mrs. Coretta Scott King and their civil and human rights legacy. The Freedom School, taking place in Fall 2021, in Manitowoc, will feature events that detail the central focuses of the King's lives and how their contributions inspire poor and working people today to build a better world. There'll be featured speakers from Wisconsin and across North America and opportunities to become engaged in today's civil and human rights activities. All events will have cultural components.
