As the DavidsonLearns winter term winds down, our regional lifelong learning organization kicks off its spring term this month — and there is still space available in three enticing courses.

 For example, The Human Side of Landmark Civil Rights Lawsuits will give you a lawyer’s-eye view from Davidson Town Commissioner Jim Fuller, who has been on the front lines of Civil Rights law since he graduated from Davidson College in 1964 and went on to UNC School of Law. Jim has taught at Duke, Wake Forest, UNC, and Davidson, and been listed multiple times in America’s Best Lawyers.

From guest speakers and taped interviews, you will hear the inside stories of people in our region who fought and won landmark Civil Rights cases.  This course will be taught by a civil rights lawyer who was there, giving us a look into their courageous trailblazing.

Jim’s course begins on Wednesday, March 27, and meets weekly from 2 –3:30 pm

at McIntosh Law Firm, 209 Delburg Street, Suite 203 – next to the Brickhouse Tavern.

In addition, a few seats are also available in these courses:

A Brief Introduction to Peace and Conflict Resolution

Dr.  Yves-Renée Jennings 

Starting on Tuesday, March 12, 2–3:30 pm 

Temple Kol Tikvah


Environmental History: Humanity’s Footprint and Today’s Policy
