The entire campus community is invited to a key event: “Marking a Movement: Civil Rights 50 Years Later.” It will be held Friday, April 16, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. It is billed as a “collage of expression,” with:

* “Falling Up,” a dance choreographed by Duane Cyrus (Dance)

* Panel discussion moderated by Dr. Robert Mayo (Communications Sciences and Disorders)

* JoAnne Smart Drane ’60 and Ann Dearsley-Vernon ’60, ’61 MFA will participate in discussion.

Drane was one of the first two African-American students to enroll at UNCG (then Woman’s College). Dearsley-Vernon was one of the white students from the campus who participated in the Woolworth sit-in.
