Masur and Penningroth on the Forgotten Years of the Civil Rights Movement

Online on at noon ET on Thursday, October 5, the National Constitution Center will host a session in its "America's Town hall" series, The Forgotten Years of the Civil Rights Movement:

Prize-winning historians Kate Masur, author of Until Justice Be Done: America’s First Civil Rights Movement, from the Revolution to Reconstruction, and Dylan Penningroth, author of the new book Before the Movement: The Hidden History of Black Civil Rights, explore the central role of African Americans in the struggle for justice and equality long before the social movement of the 1950s and 1960s. Jeffrey Rosen, president and CEO of the National Constitution Center, moderates.
