Joan Trumpauer Mulholland participated in one of the most famous and violent sit-ins of the Civil Rights Movement at the Jackson Woolworth lunch counter. She has come face-to-face with the KKK, was put on death row in Mississippi’s notorious Parchman Penitentiary with fellow Freedom Riders, and helped plan and organize the March on Washington. Following in his mother's footsteps, Loki Mulholland creates films that make a difference in the world. Joan and Loki founded the JTM Foundation, a non-profit organization that educates youth about the Civil Rights Movement and empowers them with the idea that they can make a difference.

The Reverend A.D. King, younger brother to Martin Luther King Jr., is a significant figure in history whose contributions are often overshadowed by his older brother’s legacy. Dr. Babs Onabanjo seeks to highlight the Rev. A.D.’s contributions on civil rights, and the historical events that drastically changed America under A.D.’s watch. He has come forth with a documentary to tell A.D’s story entitled “Behold the Dream: Brother to the Dreamer.”
Don’t miss this opportunity to speak with a living representative of Dr. King’s legacy!
On July 2, 1964, exactly 50 years ago today, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law the historic Civil Rights Act. The legislation outlawed discrimination based on race, color, religion, gender or national origin. It also ended discriminatory application of voter registration requirements as well as racial segregation in schools as well as in the workplace.
This landmark legislation was viewed as the culmination of the work of the civil rights movement. We are honored to have with us on this historic anniversary of the passing of the Civil Rights Act, Mr. Jesse Epps, one of Dr. Martin Luther King's closest friends and advisors. Mr. Epps was with Dr. King on the day of his assassination.
It is the life mission of Jesse Epps to forward the work of Dr. King. He was a major part of the civil rights movement back then, and now, Jesse Epps is making history with the Rebirth of America http://americarebirth.org and Neighbors Uniting American Families. http://nuafonline.org He will share about that and how you can play a role.
We have come a long way with Civil Rights. The problem is that we still have a very long way to go!
