Call in to speak with the host
Doug Shipman is the CEO of the National Center for Civil and Human Rights which seeks to expand our understanding of the impact of the American civil rights movement and connect it to the struggle for global human rights.
Doug is a graduate of Emory University and Harvard's Divinity School and Kennedy School of Government and has extensive educational background in issues of race, ethnicity and gender including the history of American minority groups and religion as applied to social movements.
AYG chats with Doug about the genesis of the Center, its mission and key players, why Atlanta is fertile ground for this effort, why it is important to connect the American civil rights movement to global human rights causes, how to connect civil rights history with the younger generation and the disconnected and why a white, male, Generation Xer from rural Arkansas is the right person to lead this effort.
