Event Description

The struggle for people of color to access public transportation has a long history – from Frederick Douglass entering a train car reserved for white passengers in 1841 to the 20th century bus boycotts in the South which lead to landmark civil rights legislation. Transportation affects where we live, work, play and go to school, and it serves as a key issue in addressing poverty, unemployment, health care, and education. Join an important discussion about transportation and why it remains a civil rights issue in many communities.
