This year marks the 50th anniversary of Freedom Summer. Join us to discuss civil rights then and now, with Dr. Lackey, author of Marks, Martin and the Mule Train (XLibris), a history of the origin of the 1968 Poor People’s Campaign and the demonstration starting in Marks, MS, and Mr. Feinstein, author of Fire in the Bayou (Foxhead Books), a memoir of his early career as a civil rights prosecutor in the 1970s. We’ll swap histories, read excerpts, maybe share some music, and discuss the movement today.

Free and open to the public. Everyone welcome. Join us.
