Committee seeks input on Civil Rights Movement

Cathy Lechowicz, Dir. of Community Service & Volunteerism, writes:

As part of the Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration on campus, the MLK Jr. Planning Committee created storyboards of significant people, events, and successes of the Civil Rights Movement. We want to add to that collection and would love for students to submit events that they feel are significant to the Civil Rights Movement.

If you would like to propose a topic, please email the topic and a brief summary of what the storyboard would include to clechowicz@wes by Dec. 8. The MLK Jr. Planning Committee will review all topics submitted and select up to six. Those selected will be asked to submit the content for the storyboard—up to 750 words—by Jan. 15.

Please visit the website for information about this year’s celebration and our keynote speaker, Dr. Robert Bullard. The website also has all of the current storyboards posted.
