***The Civil Rights group has folded and there will be no future meetings, effective March 2020 and beyond. Please consider joining the Social Justice Initiative.***
The group sought to explore all issues pertinent to racial inequality in our country. These issues included, but were not limited to, historical and theoretical perspectives on racism, enslavement, the Jim Crow laws, abolitionism, biographies of notable civil rights leaders, pivotal events in civil rights history, segregation, integration of schools, racially motivated violence past and present, and contemporary racial topics and events. The group sought to examine through reading and discussion the roots of racial bias in our nation, and to use this information in transformative discussions. All interested in looking at the roots of discrimination as a means of propelling us toward the "dream" of equality were encouraged to attend.
