Civil Rights

Samford University seeks to promote and sustain diversity and respect not only throughout its campus, but also the wider community. Interviews with those who have endured acts of intolerance and participated in the quest for equality provide striking insight into the landscape of civil rights and civil rights activism. They are encounters with living history.
