RSVP Required: Please email Christine McIntosh at chris.mcintosh@bc.edu.

The BC community is invited to attend a unique event celebrating Black History Month at the Boston College School of Social Work, where civil rights pioneer Claudette Colvin will present a talk on her life and her fight for social justice. The talk is one in a series of presentations during BC Social Work's 2014-2015 Diversity Focus on "Race & Justice."

In addition to being the grandmother of current MSW student Jennifer Colvin, Claudette Colvin played an important role in the civil rights movement. Nine months before Rosa Parks' famous stand for justice, she also was arrested for refusing to give up her seat for a white person and move to the back of the bus. She was only 15 years old at the time.  More about the Black History Month event with Claudette Colvin »
