History Lunch Break: Ella Baker–Six Decades in the Making

March 19 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

Free

As the Sit-in Movement launched in Greensboro expanded, Ella Baker of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference invited student leaders to gather at Shaw University on an April weekend in 1960. There, she would help those students organize the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). Dr. Lea E. Williams, author of We Who Believe in Freedom: The Life and Times of Ella Baker, joins us to talk about Baker’s life and legacy as a civil rights leader.
