The Eleanor Roosevelt Annual Lecture: The rebellious life of Rosa Parks
J.Z. Young Lecture Theater |
Gower Street | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential
Prof Jeanne Theoharis, Professor of Political Science, Brooklyn College, CUNY
Rosa Parks is best known as the woman whose refusal to get off a segregated bus sparked the Montgomery, Alabama, bus boycott of 1955-56, a key event in the development of the Civil Rights Revolution. However her political activism on behalf of black freedom extended well beyond this seminal act of resistance. Distinguished historian Jeanne Theoharis explores how her life was dedicated to rebellion against racism.
All are welcome to attend a talk that will illuminate the black freedom struggle, the question for civil rights, and the problem of race in modern America.
