While familiar with the history leading up to the Civil Rights movement, Dr. Scott's presentation provides a comprehensive and insightful perspective on the many intertwined events comprising the plight of Blacks in America. Events and context were reinforced, as well as new information and history were introduced. All were nicely and succinctly woven together making this an incredibly worthwhile experience.
Dr. Scott's presentation really opened up my eyes about the past of Montgomery, Alabama as a city that depended heavily on slave trade as commerce. Understanding those roots was eye-opening, and answered questions about why Montgomery was a focal point for the Civil Rights Movement. Dr. Scott's presentation filled in holes created by the very narrow focus most often described in main-stream media and school curriculum (if any) during February each year. I've never wanted to visit Montgomery because of its past, but now I would like to take a trip down there to visit sites important to the Civil Rights Movement.
Excellent. A lot of information given in a powerful way. Dr. Scott is a wonderful presenter! That presentation should be shown in high schools where the history is watered down without the real reasons behind the content that is taught
Dr. terry Scott is a dynamic, compelling speaker. She brings history to life and knows exactly how to make the important points and issues come alive. Her use of maps, pictures, and actual speeches helped convey the power of the moments she was discussing. I was enthralled and very moved by her presentation.
I want to thank Terry for helping us learn more of the real history of our nation. We really appreciated your excellent presentation. You mentioned the documentary "13th" which should also be required viewing for all Americans and anyone who questions why Black Lives Matter.
