As part of the 50th Anniversary of Civil Rights 1968-2018, the Civil Rights Commemoration Committee are hosting a panel discussion on ‘Civil Rights – A Missed Opportunity?’
Speakers include Austin Currie, Erskine Holmes, and Nelson McCausland. Chaired by Alison Morris, Irish News.
The broad based Civil Rights 50th Anniversary Commemoration Committee is chaired by Professor Paul Arthur and includes civil rights activist and many others who wish to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Civil Rights in an inclusive and reflective way.
We want to seek to learn from what happened, to consider the significance of the Civil Rights movement for our society today, the continuing resonance of the issues which it addressed and the ideals which underpinned it.
The programme of events will commemorate key events, highlight civil rights issues then and now and will engage in a constructive dialogue with those who did not share the views of the Civil Rights movement.
