Join the Columbia Club of Atlanta for a tour of the new National Center for Civil and Human Rights. The Center connects the American Civil Rights Movement to current movements to address global human rights. The Center’s purpose is “to create a safe space for visitors to explore the fundamental rights of all human beings so that they leave inspired and empowered to join the ongoing dialogue about human rights in their communities.” For those who would like to keep the conversation going, we will go to lunch at a nearby restaurant following our visit to the Center. Families are welcome; the Center has a family resource guide and encourages visits by children in third grade and older.
Special thanks to Terrie Rouse (MA, African History, ’79), Chief Operating Officer for the Center, for arranging this event.
