The Annual Ralph D. Abernathy Civil Rights Lecture Series

 

In 1955, Rev. Ralph D. Abernathy helped organize the Montgomery Improvement Association (MIA) and worked with Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. as a key leader of the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Named in memory of the noted ASU graduate and civil rights leader, this annual lecture series honors the legacy of well-known and little-known activists who contributed to the success of the modern civil rights movement.  Sponsored in partnership with the Montgomery Improvement Association (MIA).
