On March 17, 2013, author BJ Hollars will join students and visitors for Sunday Brunch at the Bloom Hillel Student Center to discuss his new book Opening the Doors: The Desegregation of the University of Alabama and the Fight for Civil Rights in Tuscaloosa.
“Opening the Doors is a wide-ranging account of the University of Alabama’s 1956 and 1963 desegregation attempts, as well as the little-known story of Tuscaloosa, Alabama’s, own civil rights movement…Relying heavily on new firsthand accounts and personal interviews, newspapers, previously classified documents, and archival research, Hollars’s in-depth reporting reveals the courage and conviction of a town, its university, and the people who call it home.”
Would you like to join us for BJ Hollars’ address and a bagel brunch at Hillel on Sunday, March 17th @ 11:30 am? Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your space. This event is free and open to any student interested in attending. Please RSVP by March 14th.
