Via Media 40s & 50s Author Discussion

Thursday, September 24, 2020 | 7:00pm

Join the Via Media 40s & 50s for a presentation and discussion with author Michael O’Brien about his award winning book: We Shall not be Moved: The Jackson Woolworth’s Sit-in and the Movement it Inspired. Mr. O’Brien’s important book was inspired by the iconic photograph that depicts civil rights activists sitting at the Woolworth’s lunch counter and remaining nonviolent while white youths physically assault them. O’Brien also has devoted many years in the service of the movement. We will come together virtually for a discussion about the history of the civil rights movement, how it relates to our current times and how we can be instruments of change in the present. All are welcome to this free online event. Email [email protected] for the zoom link.
