A Movement, Not a Moment: Reflecting on the past, present and future of Black freedom in America

This event is no longer on sale.

Saturday July 9

11:00 AM  –  12:00 PM


The Buffalo Museum of Science and Delaware North invite our neighbors to a free speaking engagement featuring Dr. Russell Wigginton, the president of the National Civil Rights Museum.

Reflecting on the devastating events of May 14, Dr. Wigginton will discuss urgent topics of civil and human rights and the pursuit of social justice through the context of historic milestones in the American civil rights movement. The conversation will include time for audience member questions with the hope of sparking a dialogue that will carry into the Buffalo community’s healing and rebuilding efforts.

Ekua Mends-Aidoo and Kendra Brim, local professionals and hosts of the “Black Gems Dive In Podcast,” will moderate the conversation.

In addition to Dr. Wigginton’s speaking engagement, Delaware North will sponsor day-long free visitation for individuals and families to the Buffalo Museum of Science on July 9.
