A Conversation with Civil Rights Advocate Martha Noonan Set for Oct. 21
Omaha - Martha Noonan will be at the University of Nebraska at Omaha to discuss women in the civil rights movement Friday, Oct. 21, at the Milo Bail Student Center’s Umoho (Omaha) Room. She will present at two different times -- from 10 to 10:50 a.m. and noon to 12:50 p.m. Her presentations are free and open to the public.
Noonan is an experienced civil rights activist and teacher of history. She was active in the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). Her involvement in the 1960s civil rights movement led her and other SNCC members to chronicle the stories of women. She is co-editor of the recently published book Hands on the Freedom Plow: Personal Accounts by Women in SNCC. The book is dedicated to the mentors, heroines and other SNCC women who didn't live to see the book published.
The UNO College of Arts and Sciences, the UNO Department of Black Studies and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Institute for Ethnic Studies have co-sponsored Noonan’s presentations. For more information, contact Felicia Dailey at email@example.com.
