Morristown Task Force on Diversity has been involved with a number of projects since our establishment in 2008. In some cases, we are sole sponsor and in other cases, we serve as co-sponsors with other groups.
In 2013, we set out to align ourselves with the Martin Luther King National Day of Service. You will find some pages on this website which reflect that effort.
In 2014, we sponsored a black and white photographic exhibit at the Rose Center displaying scenes of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. The display remained at the Rose Center during February of that year.
This year, 2015, we co-sponsored a six week event titled Latino Lakeway Celebration. There were seminars focused on the Bracero Project, a guest worker program sponsored by the Federal Government from 1942- 1964. There was an art exhibit showcasing the art of area artists and a play based upon the books, Esperanza Rising.
Most recently, we supported the work of HC*Excell and joined with others, including the local newspaper in bringing four pioneers in the Freedom Rider movement to Morristown. During the five days they were present they made public presentations as well as speaking to Middle and High School students about their experiences as non-violent workers in the Civil Rights Movement.
