Civil Rights Panel
Start Date: 4/19/2018Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 4/19/2018End Time: 6:30 PM

Event Description:
A panel of Marquette University alumni will reflect on the ways Marquette students engaged in civil rights protests of the late 1960s on Thursday, April 19, from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Haggerty Museum of Art.

Dr. Albert Raboteau, Henry W. Putnam Professor of Religion Emeritus at Princeton, where he spent most of his career, will moderate the panel during the discussion, “MU Protests: Fifty Years Later.” It also will include Art Heitzer, local attorney and civil rights activist, Greg Stanford, longtime columnist for the Milwaukee Journal, and Peggy Kendrigan, longtime administrator of Milwaukee County’s division of community corrections, and a charter school activist.

The event also marks the official launch of the “Protest@MU: Dissent on the Marquette Campus website, https://protestatmu.wordpress.com.
This event is one of Marquette’s contributions to the citywide “200 Nights of Freedom,” which commemorates the 200 consecutive nights of open housing marches in Milwaukee during 1967 and 1968. The protests were a direct cause of the passage of the federal Fair Housing Act of 1968. For more information, go to http://200nightsoffreedom.org.
