The Fellows attended discussions with renowned scholars and activists at The Center, leaders such as historian David Levering Lewis, former Mayor Shirley Franklin, and civil rights activist C.T. Vivian. Housed in the groundbreaking Center for Civil and Human Rights, the Fellows were able to draw on the immense resources of The Center and contribute to its extensive and innovative outreach initiatives.
