Webinar: Civil Rights and A Civil Society: Strategies for Community Outreach and Engagement


Date: November 14

Time: 3pm-4:15pm EST

Cost: Free for AASLH Members/ $40 Nonmembers

In today’s world, more and more institutions have to go beyond their traditional boundaries to better serve their communities. In the wake of increased media attention on interactions between law enforcement and African-American citizens, the Nashville Public Library partnered with the Metro Nashville Police Department to develop a diversity education curriculum rooted in the Nashville Civil Rights Movement. The program encourages new recruits, seasoned officers, and organization leaders to examine the ways that their city’s past influences the current social climate. By recognizing a significant need, NPL was able to use their position to provide a much needed service to the communities that call Nashville home. In this webinar, Andrea Blackman from the Nashville Public Library will discuss how their Civil Rights and A Civil Society program has been beneficial to public relations in the Nashville community and how others can create outreach opportunities out of what is happening in their backyards and in society broadly.
