Friday Spin Out into a MLK Weekend

Freedom Sisters Speak at MLK Museum

COP Celebrates the King Holiday Weekend by updating this site with items highlighting our efforts to remember, as well as, recognize the enormity of the civil rights era.  
The broad base of allies, supporters, advocates and most notably the women whom contributed to the movement of African Americans becoming apart of the American democratic process.

From that range of fears, tears and tenacity, that momentous course of time ultimately culminated in triumphant access to equal rights and eventually  the election of the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama. Meanwhile it is vitally important that we spotlight  Freedom’s Sisters  a dynamic, interactive multimedia exhibition that celebrates 20 African American women, including historic 19th-century figures and contemporary leaders, who have fought for equality for people of color. 

The exhibition is designed to appeal to people of all ages and backgrounds, and is organized around the themes of Dare to Dream, Inspire Lives, Serve the Public and Look to the Future.

Freedom’s Sisters is made possible by a grant by Ford Motor Company Fund, the philanthropic arm of Ford Motor Company. For more info check out:
