Understand the past to fight for the future.

Inside Civil Rights examines contemporary civil rights issues through the lens of the past, and specifically from the context of Gettysburg and Little Rock.

Over the years and through both accident and choice, Gettysburg and the College have been at the crossroads of civil rights discourse. The program focuses on some watershed moments—President Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, President Eisenhower’s desegregation of Little Rock Central High School, and the Civil Rights Movement—as a benchmark to critically examine the progress (or lack thereof) towards civil rights in the United States.
