UofL NETWORK talks explore school plan, civil rights history
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A luncheon dialogue series at the University of Louisville will examine the local public school assignment plan and the history of the civil rights movement in Kentucky in separate events this spring.
UofL’s College of Arts and Sciences sponsors the UofL NETWORK luncheon series. NETWORK is an acronym for New Energy to Work Out Racial Kinks.
Both events will begin at noon in the University Club. Here’s the spring schedule:
Feb. 25 – “Freedom on the Border.” Cate Fosl, director of the Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research and women’s and gender studies associate professor, and Tracy K’Meyer, history department chair and co-director of the UofL Oral History Center, will discuss their recently published book “Freedom on the Border: An Oral History of the Civil Rights Movement in Kentucky.”
April 15 – “Jefferson County Public Schools Student Assignment Plan.” JCPS Superintendent Sheldon Berman will discuss his district’s plan for elementary schools including its guiding principles, development and revisions as well as concerns related to the assignment of students.
Each meal is $10; reservations are required by the Monday prior to each event. To reserve a spot, contact Linda L. Wilson at 502-852-0274 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Marian Vasser at 502-852-2252 or email@example.com
