Kick off Black History Month with an icon of the Civil Rights Movement in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
A recipient of the 2015 Freedom Award, Joan participated in over 50 demonstrations and sit-ins including the Freedom Rides, the Jackson Woolworth’s Sit-in, the March on Washington and the Selma to Montgomery March. Her path crossed with some of the biggest names of the Civil Rights Movement: Martin Luther King, Jr., Medgar Evers, John Lewis, Stokely Carmichael, Fannie Lou Hamer, Diane Nash and Harry Belafonte. Her story has been shared around the world in multiple award-winning films and books and enshrined at the Smithsonian's new National Museum of African American History and Culture and the National Civil Rights Museum.
(Session is being recorded and will be available online for the next 45 days beginning Monday, Feb 6th.)
