During the 60’s Atlanta was a major organizing center of the Civil Rights Movement.  Join us for spirited conversation with actual participants and be enlightened. Hear from several of the children as they reveal how their parents’ involvement changed their lives.  Our moderator will lead the group in a series of questions and you will have an opportunity to pose questions of your own.  Don’t miss this chance to be up close and personal with African American history.
