A Conversation Worth Having: Dovey Roundtree
“If a conversation is hard, it’s probably one worth having.”
Join us for A Conversation Worth Having: a part of our Civil Rights & Social Change Collection.
Every Wednesday night at 7pm CST we screen a virtual collection of talks, podcasts, films and documentaries designed to educate, enlighten, and encourage empathy surrounding the struggles and hardships facing the African-American community. March is Women’s History Month, and our lineup includes five women who have defied odds and devoted their lives to helping the less fortunate.
Dovey Roundtree has for more than 50 years broken barriers for women and African Americans in a segregated America. She made history as one of the first African American members of the Women’s Army Corps before embarking on the legal career nationally acclaimed as a civil rights, criminal, and ecumenical lawyer.
On Wednesday, March 24, our program includes a documentary short on Dovey Roundtree; a previously recorded interview with Katie McCabe, who co-authored Mighty Justice: My Life in Civil Rights with Roundtree; and a collection of living history interviews with Roundtree from the National Visionary Leadership Project.
You can join us for this conversation from anywhere with an internet connection, as this is a virtual event: https://app.kosmi.io/room/s76t3n
