“Where We Stand: A One-Day Conference”

Where We Stand Poster_tnPlease join the Summersell Center on April 5, 2013, as we commemorate the 50th anniversary of the “Stand in the Schoolhouse Door” with a one-day conference. Gathering scholars doing some of the best new work on the history of the civil rights movement and the racial integration and culminating with a keynote address by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Diane McWhorter on the site of the Stand itself, this promises to be among the most exciting events the Summersell Center has sponsored yet. This event is free and open to the public. Panels will be held at 9:30 am and 1:30 pm in the AIME Building Room 110 on the University of Alabama campus. The keynote address, at which Ms. McWhorter will be introduced by Peggy Wallace Kennedy, will take place at 5:15 on the Malone-Hood Plaza at Foster Auditorium.
