National Civil Rights Conference (Meridian/Philadelphia, MS)
June 17, 2018 @ 8:00 am - June 20, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
The National Education and Empowerment Coalition, Inc. and the Cities of Philadelphia and Meridian (Mississippi) are proud to co-sponsor the Eighth Annual National Civil Rights Conference. This exciting and informative conference will be held in Meridian, Mississippi and promises to generate considerable intellectual dialogue and debate, as well as create opportunities to strengthen existing networks and forge new ones.
The National Civil Rights Conference will coincide with (1) the Annual Mississippi Civil Rights Memorial Service: an annual event remembering and honoring the three slain civil rights workers (James Earl Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner) and other Mississippi civil rights movement participants; (2) memorial activities on the grounds of the Mt. Zion United Methodist Church; and (3) memorial activities on the grounds of the Mt. Nebo Baptist Church.
