An Examination of the Civil Rights Movement from the Perspective of Unitarian Univeralist Ministers
The evening was spent recounting some of the historic moments of the Civil Rights Movement as told from the perspective of Revs. Bumbaugh, Hobart and Boeke. While they did not purport to be authorities they legitimately claimed their first hand accounts that rendered a richness to text book accounts of the Civil Rights Movement.
Stay tuned for a summation of the panel overview. Meanwhile, for an account of the local civil rights movement check out this source: Alan B. Anderson and George W. Pickering. Confronting the Color Line: The Broken Promise of the Civil Rights Movement in Chicago.
Question: What do you know about the larger Civil Rights Movement and its links to the Civil Rights Movement in Chicago?
Blessings! Rev. Qiyamah
