Stories that Shaped a Nation: A National Commemoration of the Women Icons of the March on Washington and the Civil Rights Movement” is a two year National Awareness Campaign being launched April 26 and 27th 2015 on Coretta Scott King’s 88th birthday and coming to a close on April 27, 2017 on what would have been her 90th birthday.

It’s goal? To raise national awareness of the critical and often under celebrated role of the women leaders of the Civil Rights Movement and in the world at large. Women’s vitally important presence at the decision-making tables of our national life, from the Civil Rights Movement to the Halls of U.S. Congress, from non-profits to business, from media to education and beyond, is all too often absent or at best under valued.

Collaborating with the U.S. Library of Congress, “Stories that Shaped a Nation” ensure their stories are preserved for posterity and attention drawn to the critical importance of Civil will work over the next two years to gather and enhance the stories of the Women Icons it will honor in 2015, 2016 and 2017 to Rights Education in Allentown, Pennsylvania and our nation’s schools. 

This event is open to the general public - ticketed event $50 per person. Wine, Beverages, 
Hors d'oeuvres and dessert.
