JOURNEYS TO MANHOOD PROGRAM FEATURING THE SYRACUSE 8
Thursday, October 6 at 7:00 pm in Scott Gymnasium
The Center for the Study of Boys at St. Christopher’s School will present the first installment in this year’s Journeys to Manhood Speakers Series on Thursday, October 6 at 7:00 pm in Scott Gymnasium. The event will include a panel of members of the Syracuse 8, the focus of David Marc’s book Leveling the Playing Field: The Story of the Syracuse 8. The event is free and open to the public.
Richmonder Clarence McGill will be among the participants along with author and former Syracuse University Magazine writer David Marc. McGill, one of the players deemed the Syracuse 8, will join other members of the group to discuss their controversial stance at the university as they petitioned for racial equality for their 1969-70 football team. Jonathan Zur, President and CEO of the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities, will moderate the panel.
