This Week in Civil Rights History

This week marks some significant events in the history of civil rights in the US.  Many of the occurrences are sad, such as the funeral for civil rights worker, Viola Liuzzo,  fifty years ago following the march from Selma to Montgomery, AL and the April 4, 1968 assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who said that the quest for justice was eternal.  As the quest continues, universities, such as Michigan, are hosting discussions that link the struggles of the past to our current state of  equal rights.
