Gig Harbor to host a forum on American Civil Rights
The Pierce County Library has announced two forums it will sponsor on the topics of American Civil Rights.
Our school will host the first, titled "Slavery by Another Name" and "Freedom Riders" in our school library at 6:30 pm on Thursday, April 24. Dr. Michael Honey, a professor at U of W Tacoma, will lead this initial session.
A month later, on Thursday, May 15, the Peninsula Branch of Pierce County Library will host the second forum, "The Loving Story," at 6:30 pm. That topic deals with the right to marry that an interracial couple faced in Virginia during the 1960's.
Topics, issues and literature in our curriculum, grades 9-12, connect to both forums. The Pierce County Library has multiple DVD copies of the three films connected to these forums.
We hope you will join us!
