Desegregation in Alachua County

Desegregation in Alachua County
with Michael Gengler
Thursday, December 7
6pm - FREE (Pre-registration via Eventbrite required)

The 1960s and 1970s were decades of turmoil and great change in the United States. Court-ordered desegregation of schools and public spaces was one of those much-needed changes.

Michael Gengler's research on the desegregation of public schools in Alachua County will be published sometime next year. In the meantime, we look forward to hearing him speak about his research. Space is limited for this FREE program. Please RSVP via Eventbrite.

Michael Gengler graduated from Gainesville High School in 1962 and was the editor of the "Hurricane Herald." He received an A.B. degree from Columbia College and a J.D. degree from Harvard Law School. Michael served as an Assistant Staff Judge Advocate for the U.S. Air Force, a corporate lawyer in Chicago and Boston, and a volunteer lawyer for Legal Action of Wisconsin.

This program coincides with the Matheson's new exhibit, "Liberating Learning? The Story of Desegregation in Alachua County Schools," which opens on November 8th.
