In the third program of the Civil Rights in Arizona Lecture Series, UA scholars and researchers will lead a discussion exploring Tucson's LGBTQ community. The panelists include Adela Licona, associate professor in the UA English department; Stephen Russell, director of the Frances McClelland Institute in the John and Doris Norton School of Family and Consumer Sciences; and Jamie Lee, doctoral student, in the School of Information Resources and Library Science.
Held in conjunction with Special Collections' current exhibition "50 Years: Civil Rights in Arizona from 1963 to Today," the Civil Rights in Arizona Lecture Series explores how the fight for civil rights has affected local Tucson communities. The series features community leaders, University of Arizona scholars and local educators. All lectures take place at Special Collections on the University of Arizona main campus and are free and open to the public.
