Feb. 22 | 6:30 – 8 p.m. | at Dina’s Place (Located inside of the DiGiorgio Campus Center at Winthrop University.)

Throughout the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s many activists fought against racial inequality and continue to do so today. Join two Brattonsville descendants, Ms. Margaret Crawford Parson-Willins and Mr. Wali Cathcart, who both played a role in the fight for racial and social injustices locally and nationally. Hear firsthand accounts of individuals who can link their heritage to the enslaved with their activism in a powerful demonstration of the evolution of the African American experience from slavery to freedom. This panel will be moderated by Dr. O. Jennifer Dixon-McKnight.

Sponsored by Winthrop University’s African American Studies Program in collaboration with Culture & Heritage Museums of York County. This event is a cultural event credit for Winthrop students.
