CIVIL RIGHTS PANEL AT OCEANSIDE LIBRARY TO HONOR ‘ONE BOOK, ONE SAN DIEGO’
This year, “One Book, One San Diego” made an unprecedented choice with the award-winning March: Book One, a graphic memoir about the Civil Rights Movement by U.S. Rep. John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell. In keeping with this historic selection, an Oceanside Public Library panel discussion will highlight the significant themes of the book. The free, public event will be held in the Civic Center Library Community Rooms, 330 N. Coast Highway, at 3 p.m. on Saturday, November 10.
In addition to discussing their own experience, the panelists will explore the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the current state of Civil Rights in the United States. Time will be allowed for questions from the audience. Moderating the discussion will be MiraCosta College professor Dr. Bruce Hoskins, who earned a Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Southern California with an emphasis on race and ethnic relations and multiracial identity formation.
