The Role of Youth in the Civil Rights Movement: Reflections on Birmingham

Dr. Freeman Hrabowski, President of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), will share his perspective on the Civil Rights movement – including the experience of being jailed for participating in the Children’s March in his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama – and insights from a career in education. America has seen profound changes in the past 50 years, including increased access to education for students of all races, but many challenges persist. Dr. Hrabowski firmly believes that the world does not have to remain as it is today, and he believes that each of us has a story that can inspire change.
