Bus Boycott Anniversary Events Planned

FAMU just wrapped up its 50th anniversary celebration of the Tallahassee Bus Boycott, but there are plenty more events planned around the actual anniversary later this month.

The Southern Christian Leadership Conference fittingly announced its plans at C.K. Steele Plaza this morning. C.K. Steele, of course, one of the leaders of that 1956 bus boycott which was only the second bus boycott in the nation.

There are a series of marches, lectures and vigils planned the week of May 21 through May 28. Among the featured guests: Charles Steele Junior, Dr. Joseph Lowery and Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.
