Medieval artifact, civil rights march explored at Senior Center

By From page A4 | March 21, 2013

The Davis Senior Center, 646 A St., offers two programs in the coming weeks.

The Bayeux Tapestry is a medieval artifact that visually chronicles the events surrounding the Norman conquest of England in 1066. Kendra Smith of the UC Davis English department will take participants through some of the most memorable scenes and captions of this piece of art at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.

On Tuesday, April 4, three local residents will recall their part in the historic 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery, Ala., a landmark event in the nonviolent U.S. civil rights movement. This presentation will start at 1 p.m.

Both programs are free and open to all. Sign up for either presentation by calling 530-757-5696 or stop by the Senior Center front desk. More information about Senior Center programs can be found at www.cityofdavis.org.
