From Seattle U:
WHAT: Seattle University will welcome Civil Rights Hero Carlotta Walls LaNier, as part of the university’s Martin Luther King celebration. The Congressional Gold Medal winner joined eight classmates in 1957 to desegregate Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas.
The courage of the Little Rock Nine in the face of violence, hostility and discrimination catalyzed the Civil Rights Movement and mobilized post-Brown v. Board of Education desegregation of public schools in the United States.
The event is free and open to the public. RSVPs can be made to: email@example.com or 206.296.6070. Walls LeNier will hold a book-signing and reception following the lecture. Books will be available before and after the lecture.
Walls LaNier’s life serves as an inspiring example of the university’s mission to empower leaders for a just and humane world.
