The Children’s March: Youth Activism Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow – Featuring: Ms. Joanne Bland

March 2 @ 5:00 pm-6:30 pm

Free – $55455

During my lifetime, I have been both a witness and a participant in some of our nation’s most consequential civil rights battles. In the early 60’s, I began activism with (SNCC) The Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee organized for myself along with other teens in my neighborhood and area to participate in the Civil Rights Movement.

Born and raised in Selma Alabama, I have seen first hand how racism and segregation created a deadly divide between two races and decided that it was my duty to ensure that my voice was one of the many that was heard to create equality and voting rights for African Americans.
