The 5th Annual Black History Month Program addresses the 2014 national topic, ÒCivil Rights in America.Ó It will look at current civil rights issues; one of the most pressing is the mass incarceration of people of color. Join our panel of local community leaders as we explore this subject and its impact on health, education, family structure, jobs and more.
