Civil Rights In America: Seneca Falls, Selma, Stonewall And Beyond

Listen
AIR DATE: January 20, 2014

Hosted by Charles Dutton, this one-hour special examines the relevance and meaning of civil rights in the 21st century and the relationship between the Civil Rights Movement and the efforts of women, other people of color, and the LGBT community to expand our traditional definitions of equality. Civil Rights in America features first-person narratives culled from hundreds of hours of never-before-broadcast video and audio footage to provide a rich, detailed history of the nation during an important and tumultuous period.

Daryl Michael Scott, national president for the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALAH), joins the program with other guests to discuss this year's Black History Month theme, Civil Rights in America, along with the fiftieth anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the broader implications of civil rights in America.
