Featuring Danielle McGuire

The University of Louisville will host a special NETWORK meeting on October 20, 2011 at Noon at the Cressman Center, 100 East Main Street. Danielle McGuire, author of "At the Dark End of the Street" will be the special guest speaker.

This groundbreaking book reveals what really lay beneath the 1955 boycott and ultimately the Civil Rights Movement that Rosa Parks sparked with her defiance of segregation on Montgomery's city buses.  McGuire writes about a little known rape in 1944 of a 24 year old sharecropper by a group of white men, who then left her for dead in Abbeville, Alabama.

Cost of luncheon is $10.00. To RSVP please contact Marian Vasser at mrvass01@louisville.edu or 852-2252. Sponsored by the A&S Office for International, Diversity, and Outreach Programs.
