About this Event
Dr. Smith will take a look at the infamous “Reconstruction Era” and de-mystify the fog of deja-vu we all sense but fail to recognize.
Dr. Frank Smith Jr. is a commentator, civil rights activist, politician, and speaker. From 1959-1962, Smith attended Morehouse College in Atlanta, where he was a founding member of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). Smith left Morehouse during his senior year to play a role in the Civil Rights Movement. He moved to Washington, DC in 1968 to work at the Institute for Policy Studies. Smith served as an ANC Commissioner, DC Board of Education Member and City Council Member for four terms before becoming Chairman and CEO for the organization that established the African American Civil War Memorial and an accompanying museum.
