A Conversation Worth Having: Diane Nash
“If a conversation is hard, it’s probably one worth having.”
We are happy to announce the newest program as a part of our Civil Rights & Social Change Collection: A Conversation Worth Having.
Every Monday night we will screen a virtual collection of talks, speeches, poetry, music, films and documentaries designed to educate, enlighten, and encourage empathy surrounding the struggles and hardships facing the African-American community. You can join us from anywhere around the world, as this is a virtual event > https://app.kosmi.io/room/s76t3n
For Monday, October 19, we are focusing our program on Diane Nash, who served as strategist of the student wing of the Civil Rights Movement. Nash’s campaigns were among the most successful of the era, including the first successful campaign to integrate lunch counters in Nashville; the Freedom Riders, who desegregated interstate travel; co-founding the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC); and co-initiating the Alabama Voting Rights Project and working on the Selma Voting Rights Movement.
