Polish Delegation To Visit ASU’s National Center Thursday | News
A nine-member delegation from Poland will visit Alabama State University on Wednesday, Oct. 11, from 9-10 a.m. The University’s National Center for the Study of Civil Rights and African- American Culture is coordinating the visit with the International Services Council of Alabama.
Dr. Howard Robinson, University archivist and assistant professor of history, and the Rev. Robert Graetz, a white Montgomery pastor who openly supported the Montgomery Bus Boycott, will be leading presentations on “Montgomery’s Role in the Civil Rights Movement.”
The National Center for the Study of Civil Rights and African-American Culture has a large collection of historical documents of all media categories accessible for research into the modern Civil Rights Movement and Montgomery’s role in the past and into the present. In order to provide a broad research network, the National Center has networked with many civil rights and historical groups and projects across the nation.
