Reception and program featuring Cynthia Levinson, prize winning author of We've Got a Job: The 1963 Birmingham Children's March.
Monday, February 29th
5-6:30 pm in the Boyd Vance Theatre

We've Got a Job tells the little-known story of the 4,000 black elementary, middle, and high school students who voluntarily went to jail in Birmingham, Alalama, between May 2 and May 11, 1963. Fulfilling Mahatma Gandhi's and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s precept to fill the jails, they succeeded where adults had failed in desegregating one of the most racially violent cities in America. Focusing on four of the original participants who have participated in extensive interviews, We've Got a Job recounts the astonishing events before, during, and after the Children s March.
