Location: Olav H. Hauge
Youth programme: Lynda’s journey
Lynda Blackmon Lowery was only 15 when she and many others marched along with Martin Luther King from Selma to Montgomery in Alabama to demand voting rights for black Americans. This event is recalled in her memoir Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom.
In this conversation with pupils from Rothaugen lower secondary school, Lowery talks about her experiences from that time, what has changed – and what remains the same.
The event will be repeated at 10.15 in Auditoriet. Both events are for invited lower secondary school pupils only.
The conversation will be in English.
