How should the Civil Rights Movement be remembered and memorialized? More than half a century has passed since the epochal events of the Civil Rights era, and questions about race and citizenship, freedom and equality continue to reverberate, palpably and painfully, through American society today. This talk explores, through the lens of Mississippi, the half-century long struggle over the black freedom movement in this last great citadel of Jim Crow.

Join other Stanford alums and friends for a dessert reception and mixer followed by Professor Campbell’s talk. Prof. Campbell has earned the Phi Beta Kappa Award for Undergraduate Teaching at Stanford and you’ll have the opportunity to ask your own questions about his view of these critical moments in American history.
