Pinter Leads Memoir Workshops

Dr. Robbie Pinter (English) led workshops titled “Writing Memoirs of the Civil Rights Era” at Nashville’s Scarritt-Bennett. The workshop was part of the “Elders for Today” Conference held Jan. 5-8. The 2010 “Memories, Dreams and Reality: The Civil Rights Movement 1960’s-2010” provided participants with a historical perspective of the movement in Nashville, offered a variety of creative methods of sharing individual memories/experiences, and built a framework for analysis of the ’60s era results on the movement in 2010.
