Since the infamous Boston Tea Party, protest has been integral to the American identity. John Young from Wittenberg University will speak on the legacy of black American protest and what it means in the 21st century. From early anti-slavery movements through Civil Rights era sit-ins to Black Lives Matter and take-a-knee, Young will trace the rich history of African American struggle and protest. He will highlight how the movements were received in their time and how they've impacted American history. Young received his MA in political science from the University of Dayton and currently teaches American National Government and Black Politics at Wittenberg University.
