The Listening Project: Rory David

Jan 28, 2015

Fifty years ago the Civil Rights Act of 1964 outlawed discrimination based on race, sex, or religion.  In the intervening years how much progress has our society made in improving racial and social equality?

WSIU Radio's new community engagement series The Listening Project visited with participants at Carbondale Community Arts University 2014 commemoration of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  As part of that program CCA hosted a Race Card Project installment.  The Race Card Project is a national initiative that asks people to talk about their experience with race in six words.

Additional thoughts...

Do you see any change or evolution in racial equality today?

Are you hopeful that will change?

That's Rory David.  His story was recorded on November 8, 2014 during the Carbondale Community Arts University commemoration of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

WSIU's The Listening Project is a community engagement initiative focused on preserving the oral history of the people who call this region home.
