Six staff who worked for CORE, SNCC and other civil rights organizations in the 1960s will discuss their experiences on the movement’s front lines. Their work spanned the entire 1960s, from early Freedom Rides to Black Power. They participated in desegregation struggles in Mississippi, Louisiana and Tennessee, and gathered much of the Wisconsin Historical Society’s nationally known research collection on civil rights. The traveling exhibit, “Risking Everything: A Freedom Summer Exhibit for Students,” will be on display at the museum that evening as well.
Professor Michael Mann, the climate scientist who created the well-known “hockey stick graph” that depicts Earth’s temperature from 1000AD to the present, will give a public lecture on Thursday, April 17th on the UW-Madison campus. The “hockey stick” was featured in the high-profile “Summary for Policy-Makers” of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and it quickly became an icon – and a lightning rod – in the politically charged debate over human-caused (“anthropogenic”) climate change.
Professor Mann will tell the story behind the hockey stick, using it as a vehicle for exploring broader issues regarding the role of skepticism in science, the uneasy relationship between science and politics, and the dangers that arise when the defenders of special economic interests attempt to skew the discourse over policy-relevant areas of science.
Mann’s visit and public lecture has been organized by the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Department of Atmospheric and Ocean Sciences for the 5th annual Len Robock Lecture. The Center for Climatic Research in the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies is a co-sponsor of Mann’s public lecture.
