Organizers said in a statement that the event is scheduled for Dec. 1. The commemoration is expected to include a tour of the Rosa Parks Museum, Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church, the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, the Tuskegee History Center and other sites linked to the civil rights movement.
Officials say other panelists at a symposium include Rosa Parks’ attorney Fred Gray, American Bar Association President Paulette Brown, and National Bar Association President Benjamin Crump.
Brown is the first black woman to lead the American Bar Association. The National Bar Association is a network of predominantly black attorneys and judges.
