Students, faculty and staff can attend a free lecture on "Landmark Desegregation Cases: 1895-2005" beginning at 6 p.m. Thursday in the R.J. Wills Lecture Hall, second floor of the Campus Center.
Bob Glidewell, a paralegal instructor at Pulaski Tech, will be the presenter.
The lecture is one of several campus events to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the integration of Central High School in Little Rock.
On Sept. 25, the actual date of Central High's integration 50 years ago, the college will celebrate Central High Pride Day. At noon, faculty, staff and students will gather to proclaim the college's commitment to providing equal access and educational opportunities to all. Students can also sign a pledge "in honor of the Nine" to strive for personal and academic excellence.
The timing of the campus ceremony coincides with that a ceremony to take place on the front lawn of Central High School, one of the many commemorative events organized by the Central High Integration 50th Anniversary Commission.
