The second Women’s History Month program scheduled at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute this month is titled “The Inequality of Equality: the Role of Women in Mass Movements.”

Guest speakers include former BCRI intern Tara White, who is currently a lecturer of history at the Cooperstown Graduate Program at State University of New York at Oneonta, and Michele Wilson, Ph.D., associate professor of sociology and director of the Women’s Studies Program at UAB.

White will discuss black women’s activism over time, focusing on Birmingham before, during and after the Civil Rights era. Wilson will speak further of women’s involvement in post-Civil Rights Movements and the significance of gender differences in leadership.

This program starts at 6 p.m. in the Rev. Abraham L. Woods Jr. Community Meeting Room. The BCRI is located downtown at 520 16th St. North. For more information, call 328-9696, ext. 244.
