Friday Forum-The Loving Story
Date: September 18, 2015 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM

 Friday, September 18

Millsaps Forum: The Loving Story – Judge James Graves
 12:30pm – 1:30pm
Gertrude C. Ford Academic Complex, Room 215

When Mildred and Richard Loving were arrested in July 1958, in Virginia, for violating a state law that banned marriage between people of different races, such laws had been on the books in most states since the seventeenth century. But the Lovings never expected to be woken up in their bedroom in the middle of the night and arrested. This documentary brings to life the Lovings’ marriage and the legal battle that followed through little-known filmed interviews and photographs shot for Life magazine. Judge James Graves, a Millsaps alumnus and trustee and a judge on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, will lead the audience in viewing and reflecting upon clips from this powerful documentary. This program will constitute Millsaps’ celebration of Constitution Day 2015 and is made possible in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities Created Equal Initiative. Event is free and open to the public.

Millsaps Forum: Margaret Walker - Her Life and Times
Date: October 2, 2015 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM

Millsaps Forums: Margaret Walker: Her Life and Times - Robert Luckett, PhD
Friday, October 2, 12:30pm – 1:30pm
Gertrude C. Ford Academic Complex, Room 215

In a 1968 journal entry, Margaret Walker listed the “Five Black Creative Prose Writers Who Have Influenced Black Thought and Expression” and who “have left an indelible and profound impression on the American people.” Her list was impressive and included W.E.B. Du Bois, Langston Hughes, Richard Wright, James Baldwin, and Ralph Ellison. In part because of her own writing, including the great poem For My People and the Civil War-era novel Jubilee, Margaret Walker deserves to be lifted into the national consciousness as part of that elite group, but her scholarship, teaching, and mentorship were equally impressive. This talk, which will be led by Dr. Robby Luckett, Director of the Margaret Walker Center at Jackson State, looks at the remarkable life of a woman who found herself immersed in the 20th Century black arts movement and who took the opportunity to lift up the great artists of her generation and those of the next, particularly through an institution that she founded while on the English Department faculty at Jackson State College: the Institute for the Study of the History, Life, and Culture of Black People. She did all of this while staring down patriarchal, Jim Crow Mississippi. This Millsaps Forum happily coincides with the celebration of the Margaret Walker Centennial in 2015. Event is free and open to the public.
