An Evening with Bob Zellner- Civil Rights Activist - September 20 at 7:00pm in the Scandinavian Cultural Center in UC 101 presented by the Diversity Center.
Raised in southern Alabama, with a father and grandfather active in the Ku Klux Klan, Bob Zellner became an unlikely civil rights activist. Yet today, he is well known as one of the most influential white southerners of the civil rights movement of the 1960s, in part for organizing "The Freedom Rides" of 1961.
A field secretary for SNCC, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, Zellner was arrested 18 times in seven states, charged with everything from criminal anarchy to "inciting the black population to acts of war and violence," all in the attempt to register voters and bring about change and equality. Now a PhD. in history, with a focus on the southern civil rights movement, Zellner keeps the stories of the movement alive. In his memoir, The Wrong Side of Murder Creek: A White Southerner in the Freedom Movement, Zellner reveals the sometimes horrific, always interesting, story of the commitment to racial justice.
