Pivotal Events of the Civil Rights Movement
Ain’t Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me ‘Round
The Living Legacy Project’s mission is to provide experiential education about the American Civil Rights Movement that challenges, inspires and equips people from all backgrounds for justice work in their communities and beyond. Since its founding, the Living Legacy Project (LLP) has enacted its mission by taking people on Civil Rights Pilgrimages through the South meeting with Movement veterans and learning firsthand about the struggles that occurred there.
In the late winter of 2020, the pandemic temporarily halted these Pilgrimages, challenging the LLP find new ways to do its work. From May through October of last year, the Project offered a monthly online series focused on voting rights. In it, we explored what we can learn from the Voting Rights Movement of the 1950s and 60s to apply to challenges we face today in these unprecedented times.
After the overwhelming success of our first virtual series in 2020, Voting Rights: The Struggle Continues, LLP is offering concurrent speaker and music series in 2021. Join us for any or all of these exciting programs, and don't forget to watch the programs you missed from the voting rights series.
Because music was a critical part of the Civil Rights Movement and continues to be important to the work for civil rights and social justice today, we’ll begin our speaker and music series with a combined offering on Sunday, January 24, and then split off on two interconnected journeys to highlight the stories and the songs of the Movement.
Join us for any or all of these exciting programs. They are free and open to all. Donations are appreciated!
