Learn about Selma-Montgomery voting rights march at talk Feb. 26

Next year marks the 50th anniversary of the Selma-Montgomery voting rights march, a pivotal event that helped pave the way for the passage of the Voting Rights Act.

The Case Western Reserve University community is invited to hear two people who were at Selma in 1965 speak about their experience on Wednesday, Feb. 26, at noon in the School of Law, Room 157.

The speakers, Diane Phillips-Leatherberry, the wife of Professor Emeritus Wilbur Leatherberry, marched at Selma, and Daniel Clancy  (LAW ’62), who was a law school and university administrator for more than 40 years, was an FBI agent assigned to Selma during the march. Jonathan Entin, associate dean for academic affairs, will moderate the talk.

The program is sponsored by the Case Western Reserve University School of Law.

Food and beverages will be provided by Black Law Student Association.

The program is free and open to all.
