 On Thursday, April 12 at 5:30 pm, the Historic Mobile Preservation Society is proud and honored to present the next in our Heroes of the 20th Centurylecture series. Larry Menefee will speak on his work at the front lines of America’s Civil Rights Movement in his lecture “Civil Rights: Mobile, the 1970s”. Mr. Menefee is a native son of Mobile who worked single-handedly to desegregate our city. Mr. Menefee will reveal first-person facts behind his legal cases, cases that changed laws and made history by moving our country closer to equality. You will hear of his extreme difficulties, as well as his hard-won successes. Larry Menefee is truly one of our city’s Heroes of the 20th Century, and this your chance to meet him in person and hear his amazing story firsthand! This lecture will be held in the Cox-Deasy House at 300 Oakleigh Place next Thursday, April 12. Enjoy a glass of wine and an inspiring lecture, making it home by 6:30.
