Commodore Conversations 2020

Panel Description

Session Description:

The media played a powerful role during the Civil Rights Movement. In this session, we will examine and have friendly conversations on the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott, the 1963 March on Washington and the 1963 Birmingham Demonstrations, and see how the media was instrumental in drawing attention to many of the social justice issues during that time. We will also examine how social movements like Black Lives Matter and similar movements, along with citizen generated media plays an important part in social justice today.
