On 2/24, UTC Premieres New Documentary on Chattanooga's Civil Rights Movement
On the afternoon of Friday February 19, 1960, 12 honors students from Howard High School sat down at a segregated “whites only” lunch counter in downtown Chattanooga. Their protest marked the beginning of the Civil Rights Movement in Chattanooga. A new documentary honoring nine Chattanoogans whose actions were pivotal in the Civil Rights Movement will receive its premiere in UTC’s University Center Auditorium on Monday February 24 at 5:15. Richard Winham has excerpts from the documentary, and talks with Dr. Brian Samuels, director of the Office of Equity and Diversity here at UTC. His office commissioned the documentary.
