Civil Rights Lecture Series, Feb. 19

Date: Wednesday - February 19, 2014
Time: 3:05 PM
Location: Torp Theater

 

Civil Rights Lecture Series

Civil Rights Attorney Fred D. Gray was the principal lawyer involved in the Montgomery Bus Boycott in 1955 and the modern day Civil Rights movement. He represented Mrs. Rosa Parks, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and other participants in the civil rights movement.


Atty. Gray also created the litigation strategy for the boycott, which ended in a decision by the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled that bus segregation was unconstitutional in 1957.

This event is free and open to the public.
