Good Afternoon Dr. Moten,

My name is Liana and I am the Communications and Community Partnerships Manager at the National Archives Foundation. I’m writing to invite you and your department colleagues and students to a special event we’re having at the National Archives featuring Civil Rights Attorney Fred Gray. 

He’ll be speaking with us (virtually) this coming Thursday, June 10th at 5pm ET about his experience organizing the Montgomery Bus Boycott, time as Martin Luther King Jr and Rosa Parks’s attorney, and career as a legislator. 

Please feel free to share widely, as this promises to be an exciting and insightful event! Additional info is attached and you can register here: www.archivesfoundation.org/event/destroying-segregation/
