Next week's schedule: February 23 & 25


To celebrate Black History Month, we will explore different organizations or institutions, old and new, that have played a role in the advancement of civil rights of African Americans: the U.S. military, the Black church, and most recently, Black Lives Matter.

The Black Church and Civil Rights looks at the role of the church since just after the Civil War.
