Speakers List

The Movement veterans listed here are available for speaking engagements and to answer email queries. Schools, churches, youth groups, and other organizations who wish to hear first-hand from those who participated in the Civil Rights Movement can use this list to directly contact Movement veterans.

Students in particular have been very interested in the stories we've told and the experiences we've shared. Example responses from Calvin Simmons Middle School.
