    Every day seems to present a new crisis of democracy. Many scholars, community leaders, and activists draw parallels between modern political and social dynamics and those of the Jim Crow era and the early days of the Civil Rights Movement.
    How accurate are these comparisons? How important is it to also understand the resistance and opposition movements and strategies that ultimately lead to change? What lessons does this history offer? This panel will examine both whether there is a resurgence in the dynamics of the Jim Crow era and to what extent resistance movements and strategies inform social change today.
