The aim of The Griot Institute's The Civil Rights Movement: Fifty Years Later series is to offer the University and the local community an opportunity to examine the histories of the American civil rights movement, in an effort to extend the conversation and to acknowledge and define the necessity and current trajectories of the primary goal of the movement: to enable the US to fulfill its articulated principles, guaranteeing equality to all of its citizens.
By blending technology and tradition, the Griot Storytelling Project allows the Institute to function as a griot for Bucknell. This ongoing project gathers oral narratives created by members of the Bucknell community in order to build a historical record, to encourage creative engagement with the art and utility of oral storytelling, and to showcase the experiential range of our community in an effort to define who we are at this moment in our collective history.
