Centre College to offer civil rights programming

DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Centre College is planning to offer community programs over the next year that focus on the 50th anniversary of the civil rights movement.

The Advocate-Messenger (http://bit.ly/1wvWT4H) reports a grant from the National Endowment of the Humanities has made the initiative possible.

As part of the project, four films will be shown about the civil rights movement and related campus programming will be led by Professor of Politics Daniel Stroup and Assistant Vice President for Diversity Education J.H. Atkins. The events will provide students and community members an opportunity to discuss issues surrounding race relations.

In addition, racial equality will be the theme of several campus convocations, with the first being a Constitution Day address on Wednesday on the "Myth and Miracles from the King Years."
