From Kelli McLoud-Schingen: "The fight for civil rights is a personal story for me and my family, as well as for most African-Americans in this country, and one which has shaped my work in the intercultural field. My aunt was a Freedom Rider, my uncle was a Black Panther and my grandfather served in World War II and was welcomed home, not as a soldier, but with racism and violence. While Jim Crow laws were abolished decades ago, our current climate shows that there is still a lot that needs to be accomplished to eradicate discrimination and inequities and to heal the racial divide in the U.S. Defining and reading about the fight for Civil Rights is a dispassionate way of learning about them. Experiencing them is a different matter. In this webinar, I will describe my own history with civil rights as well as the history of my family. You will share in my passion for equal social opportunities and equal protection under the law regardless of race, religion, or other personal characteristics. This is my story."
