Film at the Stone Center tomorrow

Tomorrow night there will be a screening of the documentary The Order of Myths at the Sonja Haynes Stone Center. In the film, Margaret Brown takes us to Mobile, Alabama for the annual Mardi Gras celebration. Mardi Gras in Mobile is a tradition that extends back to 1703 and continues today – and it remains racially segregated. For more information on this event, visit our event calendar page or visit the Stone Center’s events page.

Announcing Our New Site

Welcome to our new Long Civil Rights Movement website!  New features are a clickable calendar; information about the LCRM Conference in April 2009; and a survey for scholars interested in giving us feedback on our ideas for the project.  Professors and graduate students who complete the survey will receive a complimentary UNC Press book as a thank you from the LCRM project team!
