Art of Conversation: Segregation and Civil Rights

Description: This program will feature KU historian William M. Tuttle and historical eyewitnesses discussing segregation in 1960’s Lawrence and the grassroots movement that brought about the historic Fair Housing Ordinance of 1967, one of the first in the nation. Dr. Tuttle will begin the first hour with background information on the racial climate in 1960’s Lawrence. Audience members will then have the opportunity to ask him and the witnesses about life in segregated Lawrence and the civil-rights movement. Dr. Tuttle will conclude the first hour with remarks on what we’ve heard and what it indicates about local and civil-rights history. After an intermission, the second hour will feature research volunteer Tom Arnold and Scott Wagner of the City Attorney’s Office introducing listeners to a new oral history project undertaken by the city government to record the stories of those involved in the Fair Housing Ordinance.
