NCLL PRESENTS CIVIL RIGHTS PROGRAM

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  MARQUETTE – Pat and Dave Mair will share their personal experiences of promoting racial equality in the early 1960s in a Northern Center for Lifelong Learning presentation. It is scheduled from 6:30-8 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 16, at the Kaye House on Center Street – home of Northern Michigan University President Les Wong and his wife, Phyllis.

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  David was pastor of a Presbyterian Church in Tennessee in the early '60s.

As a visible reminder of their experiences, they will bring a KKK cross that was burned on their lawn.
