Celebrating Our Elders Who Led Us across the Bridge: A Call to Action for the Academy
Parham, William D.; Clauss-Ehlers, Caroline S.
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v44 n1 p4-27 Jan 2016
This issue of the "Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development" launches an inaugural series, Hearing Our Elders, and introduces the Honorable Congressman John Lewis as the series' 1st guest. The social, environmental, and political contexts within which the civil rights and multicultural counseling movements were shaped and unfolded are highlighted as are the incredible contributions by this history-making icon to these 2 momentous and consequential social reform campaigns. The article, with excerpts from an interview with Congressman Lewis, illuminates central and overlapping themes of both movements that, in turn, represent cornerstones of the Hearing Our Elders series. The authors conclude with an invitation to guess the name of the next historic hero to be featured in the Hearing Our Elders series.
