Guest Speaker from National Civil Rights Museum


Last week ASW had the pleasure of welcoming Dr. Noelle Trent, Director of Interpretation, Collections and Education at the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, Tennessee. She spoke to high schoolers about the museum within the context of the civil rights movement in America. Students considered the role of resistance and protest movements in contemporary society.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the death of Martin Luther King, Jr, at the Lorraine Motel, the very site where the museum stands today.

The talk was introduced by Mr. Ryszard Schnepf, former Ambassador of the Republic of Poland to the United States and presently a Professor at Warsaw University.
