Lyceum Presentation to Focus on Civil Rights Music

January 24, 2014 – Dutchess Community College will host a Lyceum program called “Songs From the Civil Rights Movement” on Jan. 30 at 12:30 p.m. in the James and Betty Hall Theatre on DCC’s Poughkeepsie campus. It is free and open to the public.

Victoria Christgau, the Founder and Executive Director of the Connecticut Center for Nonviolence, will bring an interactive program to campus that celebrates the songs of the Civil Rights Movement and brings Martin Luther King Jr.’s words to life. The presentation works to keep the dream alive, making connections between the struggles of the past, the current challenges in civil rights and a path for the future of non-violence.

The event is part of DCC’s annual celebration of Black History Month. For more information, contact the DCC Office of Student Activities at (845) 431-8050.
