Civic Talk: An Evening with Diane Nash
Join us for an evening with civil rights icon and Chicago native Diane Nash as she recounts her work and shares her perspective on the civil rights movement. A leader of the Nashville Student Movement, Nash was active in coordinating civil protests in the South, including the Freedom Ride from Birmingham, Alabama, to Jackson, Mississippi, in 1961.
