Civil Rights to be Discussed at LSC-Kingwood
Designed to be interactive and thought provoking, this conference is for community members interested in the examination of the Civil Rights movement and how to teach it. Participants will also receive resources needed for instruction.
“The Civil Rights Movement and the killing of Jim Crow were, as historian Todd Purdum has said, a time of ‘shared civic purpose, national unity, and hope that the nation might yet live up to its founding creed.’ Join us at LSC-Kingwood for our third annual History Day as we explore the grass-roots movement that changed America,” said Dr. John Barr, history professor.
The conference format includes morning presentations by distinguished authors and afternoon break-out sessions discussing primary sources. Presentations will be given by Patricia Bernstein, “The First Waco Horror: The Lynching of Jesse Washington and the Rise of the NAACP”; Marvin Sparks, “The Music and Musicians of the Civil Rights Era (from gospel to jazz)"; Dr. Gavin Wright, “The Economic Significance of the Civil Rights Revolution”; and Dale Carpenter, “Lawrence vs. Texas and Modern Civil Rights.” The event will be held in the Student-Conference Center.

Happy Birthday Walt! Writers in Performance Series Celebrates with Annual Gathering
Continuing the long-running annual tradition of sonnet and verse, the Writers In Performance series hosts a two-part birthday celebration for acclaimed poet Walt Whitman, on Thursday, May 7.  
The celebration will bring together more than 20 of the region’s best-known poets for what, according to Dianne Logan of the Montgomery County Literary Arts Council, is known as one of the longest-running Whitman birthday celebrations in the world.
The first event, which takes place at Lone Star College-Montgomery at 3 p.m. in the General Academic Center (Bldg. G), Ed Folsom, Ph.D., author of Walt Whitman: The Measure of His Song and other works on Whitman, will discuss nineteenth-and twentieth-century American poetry and ways poets have talked back to Walt Whitman over the years, and how Whitman tapped into the American culture. http://fatcatwebproductions.com/ThePaper_2014/md-thenews/content/happy-birthday-walt-writers-performance-series-celebrates-annual-gathering
