Civil Rights 45: What Does Freedom Mean? An Exploration of Change Agency in the Civil Rights Movement


In this program, we discuss the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement and compare the promises and hopes of the 1960’s to the reality of America today. We  investigate how well freedoms have been assured through that legislation, where battles for freedom remain to be fought, and how each of us can be a part of carrying the movement forward.  Guests are Dr. Geoff Ward, Associate Professor and Associate Chair of African and African-American Studies at Washington University in St. Louis and Darryl T. Jones II, Director of Community Engagement and Partnerships for the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis.

This program was funded in part through a grant provided by the Missouri Humanities Council.
