Kresge Library

The Library has invited NAACP/ACLU civil rights lawyer, Dr. Jerome L. Reide, to discuss recent cases involving civil rights matters. The Library has also invited civil right activist, Ms. Mamie Chalmers, to discuss her participation in the Civil Rights Movement. This program will include an interactive discussion on issue such as voting rights, right to privacy, government surveillance, censorship, LGBT issues, women’s rights issues, religious freedoms, 9/11 abuses of power, and especially, and the use of race in college admissions.

This event is a part of the African-American Celebration Month festivities at Oakland University which takes place from January 20 - February 20.
