Civil Rights And The Arts 2021

The Arc of Freedom & Social Justice is proud to invite you to our annual event Civil Rights & The Arts (C.R.A.T.A) 2021. Due to Covid-19, we have split the event into a two-day experience, and although it is not required we ask that all guests wear a mask and be vaccinated or have a recent Covid-19 test to ensure the safety of our special guest.

Friday, September 24, 2021, we will have a Meet and Greet event held at The Manship in Jackson, MS 717 Poplar BLVD, Jackson MS 39202. This event will begin at 5:30 pm and will end at 8:00 pm. This is an upscale black-tie event and we look forward to our guests dressing up for this private event. We will have special presentations as well as door prizes for our guests. Dinner will start at 6:00 pm followed by our special presentation.

On Saturday, September 25, 2021, we will conclude with the virtual screening of our updated film “George Raymond: Thirst For Freedom” at 11:30 pm at Tougaloo College’s event Honoring the 60th anniversary of the freedom rides. The link and flyer to Tougaloo College’s event will be attached to this email as well.
