April Abounds In Civil Rights Programs

ALBANY, GA - If you are interested in learning more about the Civil Rights Movement, next month is the time to be in Albany. On Friday, April 1, Dr. William G. Anderson, the first president of the Albany Movement, will address the Albany State University Founder's Day Convocation at 10 a.m. in the HPER Gymnasium on the ASU campus. Dr. Anderson was a key player in the 1961-1962 effort that launched a frontal assault on Jim Crow segregation in Albany. 

On Friday, April 15, ACRI joins ASU in hosting a presentation by civil rights icon C.T. Vivian. The joint event is part of ASU's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Albany State College student protest movement. One of the original Freedom Riders and a colleague of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Rev. Dr. Vivian will speak on "Remembering the Dream: A Vision Continues" in Old Mt. Zion Church at ACRI at 7:30 p.m. 

ACRI's regularly scheduled April Monthly Community Night on Thursday, April 28, will feature Hank Klibanoff, Pulitzer Prize-winning coauthor of The Race Beat: The Press, the Civil Rights Struggle, and the Awakening of a Nation. Klibanoff will discuss his book on reporting the civil rights movement as well as his current work on reviving cold cases of civil rights activists' murders. A book signing will follow the ACRI presentation which begins at 7:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

The April 15th and April 28th events will be at 7:30 p.m. at ACRI in Albany.
