One Book-One College Event


Wednesday, April 9




Cumberland County College anthropology students will present a series of monologues that capture the context of America during the height of the country’s civil rights movement in the 1950s and ‘60s. Part of the college’s One Book-One College reading campaign, the event takes place at 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 9 in the theatre of the Guaracini Performing Arts Center, Sherman Avenue and College Drive. Admission to the event is free and the public is welcomed. This year’s book selection, A Mighty Long Way: My Journey to Justice at Little Rock Central High School by Carlotta Walls LaNier, is a memoir of one of the nation’s most significant civil rights battles. Cumberland County College students will bring history to life as they recreate scenes of historical significance from the turbulent era in which the book was written. For more information, call professor Sharon Kewish at 691-8600 ext. 1358.
