Panel Discussion on how local institutions will preserve the stories of the Civil Rights movement

FREE and open to the public
This event- on Sat. May 30-was inspired when I was looking to do some oral history interviews related to Bossier's school integration case and another Civil Rights trailblazer with Bossier Parish ties and found out they had already passed.

Participants and the institutions they are representing:
Moderator: Dr. Michael Hicks, Jarvis Christian College and Executive Director of the North La. Civil Rights Coalition
Dr. Laura McLemore, Archivist: Noel Memorial Library Archives and Special Collections, LSU-Shreveport
Ashley Hazelton: Oral History Project at R.W. Norton Art Gallery
Deborah Allen: North Louisiana Civil Rights Coalition 
Brian McNew, McNew Architecture, North Louisiana Civil Rights Museum
Pam Carlisle History and Outreach, Bossier Parish Library Historical Center
Dr. Orella Brazile, founder and Library Director, Black Ethnic Archives at Southern University – Shreveport
