Selma: Forgetting the Future

Wednesday, March 4, 2015 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Law Common

Western New England University School of Law along with the Institute for Legislative and Governmental Affairs will host a presentation by Department of History Professor John Baick. Dr. Baick's talk is titled "Selma: Forgetting the Future." The commemoration of the Selma, Alabama voting right marches has already begun with the 50th anniversary approaching quickly. The film Selma has been a part of this process, as will countless news stories and civics lessons throughout America. But commemoration is not the same thing as history. One studies the past to understand the present and anticipate, or even shape, the future. Selma is just one example of how we are forgetting our future. Please join Dr. Baick for this important discussion about the history of Selma and its relevance to the present and the future. The event is Free and Open to the Public. Pizza will be served.
