“Becoming Bobby Kennedy”
Friday, December 6
Byrd/Morris Seminar Room
Please join us Friday, December 6 in the Mary and David Harrison Institute for a presentation by our current visiting William Elwood Fellow, Patricia Sullivan. Ms. Sullivan will discuss her research during a brown bag lunch at noon in the Byrd/Morris Seminar Room on the top floor of the Harrison Institute/Small Special Collections Library.
Ms. Sullivan, professor of History at the University of South Carolina, is the author of three books on the civil rights movement and a director of the Summer Institute at the W.E.B. DuBois Institute at Harvard University. She will discuss what her research has revealed, and the questions it raises, about the evolution of Robert Kennedy’s engagement with issues of race and civil rights, focusing on his experiences in relationship to the South during the 1950s and early 1960s.
The talk is free and open to the public.
