In this special installment of the Fort Lauderdale Historical Societyâ€™s Broward 100 Lecture Series in celebration of Black History month, Vanessa Gilyard will present â€œHow the St. Augustine Movement Helped Pass the Civil Rights Act,â€ a lecture exploring how this movement, which started in 1963, paved the way for the Civil Rights Act to be passed in 1964 and spurred major changes in Broward County. The lecture is inspired by Gilyardâ€™s masterâ€™s thesis titled “How the St. Augustine Movement Helped Pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Police Brutality the Activists Endured.” Gilyard, a native of Broward County, obtained her second masterâ€™s degree in History, with a concentration in American History, and now teaches undergraduate history at Strayer University following a corporate career. She is also a museum docent for the Fort Lauderdale Historical Society. This event is free and open to the public but an RSVP is required.
