What is the difference between Civil Rights and Human Rights? Does one relate to or influence the other? Who were all the heroes of the Civil Rights Movement and do they have any role in worldwide global rights? Stanlie James, Ph.D., author and professor emeritus at ASU, will explores the role Black women played in not only the Civil Rights Movement but the bigger global human rights environment. Learn how the actions of a few changed the lives of millions in the United States and throughout the world.
Please join Stanlie James on Monday, March 6, 10:00 a.m., to find out how these women may have changed the life of a friend or ancestor by refining and implementing rights for the global good.
Tickets to the lecture are $5 each and will be available in the lobby of the Renaissance Theater beginning at 9 a.m.
