U.S. “Civil Rights Movement Sites and the World Heritage List” Webinar Time Change: Now at 4 pm, 30 July 2020


The US/ICOMOS Webinar “U.S. Civil Rights Movement Sites and the World Heritage List” will now take place on Thursday, July 30th, from 4 pm to 5 pm EDT. We have decided to delay our webinar out of respect for Representative John Lewis. On Thursday, one last celebration of his life will take place at 11 am at Ebenezer Baptist Church Horizon Sanctuary in Atlanta. We hope you will take a moment to join us in remembering the prolific life and career of the honorable Representative John Lewis.


If you have registered but are unable to attend, please email membership [at] usicomos.org to let us know as soon as possible. We have a waitlist for the webinar and would like to be able to accommodate as many people as possible on that list. This webinar will be recorded and uploaded for public viewing. Everyone who has registered will be sent a link to the recorded webinar.

Also, Please Note: The Georgia State University World Heritage Initiative is seeking feedback from audience participants in the July 30, 2020, US/ICOMOS Webinar on this working draft narrative expressing the Statement of Outstanding Universal Value and Justification under World Heritage Criteria (ii) and (vi) of the potential serial nomination of U.S. Civil Rights Movement Sites being developed for potential inscription on the World Heritage List.  Comments may be sent to gteskew [at] gsu.edu. Thank you for your consideration.
