The Powerbroker: Whitney Young's Fight for Civil Rights

Monday, August 18, 2014

Noon - 1:30 PM
1.5 CEs

Catholic Social Services Conference Room

Corner of Fisher & Fifth in Marquette

(enter at door to left off parking lot)

Whitney M. Young, Jr. was one of the most celebrated — and controversial — leaders of the civil rights era. The Powerbroker: Whitney Young's Fight for Civil Rights follows his journey from segregated Kentucky to head of the National Urban League and President of the National Association of Social Workers. Unique among black leaders, he took the fight directly to the powerful white elite, gaining allies in business and government, including three presidents. Young had the difficult tasks of calming the fears of white allies, relieving the doubts of fellow civil rights leaders, and responding to attacks from the militant Black Power movement.

 

This Region 1 event will feature a viewing and discussion of film The Powerbroker and how Michigan social worker can effect change in their communities.

Free for NASW members, $15 for non-members
