The U-M Women’s Basketball team began this season with surprising success, winning nine of their first eleven games. In Big Ten competition, things have not gone so well – but not for lack of effort or strong leadership, as four of the losses were by a combined total of eleven points, including two heartbreakers to the nationally fifth-ranked Buckeyes. With his usual fiery charm, Coach Borseth will give us a progress report and preview the rest of the season.
U-M Afroamerican Studies Lecturer Scott Ellsworth - Small Steps, Big Impact: How Four Forgotten College Students Changed America
The American Civil Rights Movement began dramatically with the Montgomery bus boycott in 1955-56. Remarkable as that was, however, it was not repeated in other Southern cities, and four years later segregation in the South seemed as entrenched as ever. Scott Ellsworth will explain how four unexceptional young men in a college dormitory in North Carolina then embarked on a course of action that would change racial politics in America forever.
