The Atlanta Carleton Club invites you to

A Carleton Cultural Journey in Downtown Atlanta

Saturday, August 29, 2015,  11 a.m.
Center for Civil and Human Rights
100 Ivan Allen Jr Blvd, Atlanta, GA 30313

Newly-opened in June, the Center for Civil and Human Rights allows audiences to take self-guided interactive tours. Join fellow Carleton alumni, parents, and current and incoming students as we explore the American civil rights movement and international human rights crusades. We'll spend about 90 minutes engaging in and absorbing the sights and sounds of those courageous pioneers who decided to speak up and act instead of letting injustice continue.

RSVP online by Wednesday, August 26 using the form found here.

Questions? Contact Monique Oliver ‘94.

We’ll meet at the front entrance—look for the small Carleton sign—at 11 a.m. and then attendees will tour the exhibits at your own pace. After we're done with the exhibits (about 12:30 p.m.), we’ll gather again by the entrance/exit to discuss where we'd like to have lunch to discuss all that we've seen and get to know each other and/or catch up. There are several options within walking distance or using the free Atlanta Streetcar including the food court at CNN Center, Max's Coal Oven Pizzeria, Sweet Auburn Seafood (via streetcar), Mangos Café (Caribbean food via streetcar) or Ted's Montana Grill.

Hope to see you there!
