Becoming the Beloved Community Amid the Fragility of Democracy and White Supremacy
March 1 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Auburn University College of Liberal Arts will host a public virtual dialogue on Monday, March 1, on “Becoming the Beloved Community Amid the Fragility of Democracy and White Supremacy,” in commemoration of the 56th anniversary of Bloody Sunday at the Edmund Pettus Bridge, Selma, AL.
Everyone is invited to register for this event by going to: https://aub.ie/belovedcommunity. Participants will contribute to a conversation that unpacks the question of, “Has American democracy always been fragile within the historical context of pre-and-post the American Civil War and slavery, racial injustice, white supremacy, classism, civil religion, and voter suppression?”
The panelists include Dr. Bernard LaFayette, Civil Rights Activist who played a leading role in organizing the Selma Voting Rights Movement in the 1960s and author of In Peace and Freedom: My Journey in Selma; Dr. Bridgett King, Auburn University Associate Professor and the Master of Public Administration Program Director; and Dr. Wayne Flynt, Professor Emeritus in the Department of History.
