MLK Lieutenant C.T. Vivian To Speak At Civil Rights Inst.


ALBANY, GA - Albany State University and the Albany Civil Rights Institute collaborate to welcome Civil Rights Legend and Dr. Martin Luther King's lieutenant in the struggle, Reverend Dr. C.T. Vivian to the city of Albany.

The theme for the evening will be "A Dream Remembered, a Vision Continued." One of the 1961 Freedom Riders, Dr. Vivian will speak about his much earlier experiences in 1947, as a young man,

in the North, heading up one of the early sit-ins of the post-World War II era. His success there introduced him to the work that would lead him into the eye of the storm we call the modern Civil Rights Movement.

The movement eclipsed much of America's history during the 1950s, 1960s, and early 1970s and became the quintessential example of how to conduct a peaceful revolution. Dr. Vivian will also ponder the turn the movement has taken in the twenty-first century and why it is so important to get young people involved in the ongoing struggle.


The joint ACRI-ASU event on Friday, April 15, is part of ASU's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Albany State College student protest movement. This unforgettable evening will begin at 7:30 p.m. in ACRI's Old Mt. Zion Church, 326 Whitney Avenue, Albany.
