We Grow Into Courage – Performance
Friday, February 28
7 pm, Dinand Library, College of Holy Cross, Worcester MA

At Holy Cross in the Levi’s Browsing Room in the basement of the main library. The librarian at the desk can direct you to this room. The event is free and open to the public. It is a multi-media event blending photos, music, and excerpts from the memoirs of important women in the movement to assure voting rights for all. The discussion focuses on the upsurge in voter suppression going on now so it has relevance to the present as well as being a powerful portrait of the sacrifices and courage of the women of the early Civil Rights Movement.
