As we approach the end of another Black History Month, join the Gantt Center for a thoughtful, multigenerational discussion about the history of action and progress in civil rights protests. How do we move forward? Where do we go from here?

Legendary civil rights leaders Rev. Dr. Jesse Douglas, who marched with Martin Luther King, and Rev. Dr. Rodney Sadler will be accompanied by community organizer Janelle Dunlap, of the Men’s Shelter in Charlotte. de'Angelo Dia, photojournalist and chaplain at Trinity Episcopal School, will moderate this discussion about the nation’s transition from marching and protesting to active, sustained engagement.
