Civil Rights leader to visit campus Friday
Henry Brown III, civil rights activist from Milwaukee, will deliver an address on his personal experience with racism and current developments in the civil rights movement across the country Friday, March 13, from 1:05 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. in Todd Wehr 215.
Brown is one of the 94 African-American students who were expelled from UW-Oshkosh as a result of events that unfolded on November 21, 1968, known as “Black Thursday.” Hear a snippet of Brown’s story here.
Since this experience, Brown has gone on to implemented affirmative action programs for various agencies, departments and bureaus in Milwaukee and served as the head priest of the First Church of Rasta in Los Angeles. A resident of Los Angeles, Mr. Brown is currently staying in Milwaukee.
Brown’s visit is part of the Politics and Government Department’s course on American Government.
