Floyd, Marler Receive $56,000 Lilly Fellows Program Grant

Samford professors Hugh Floyd and Penny Marler have received a $56,000 grant from the Lilly Fellows Program National Network Board for a summer seminar for college teachers.

Dr. Floyd, chair of the Sociology Department, and
Dr. Marler, a religion professor, will lead the seminar, "Spirituality and Social Justice: Lessons from the Civil Rights Movement," during the summer 2001 at Samford.

The month-long seminar, set for June 4­29, will involve 12 college professors from around the nation in an interdisciplinary study of issues related to spirituality and social justice.

In addition to on-campus reading, discussion and research, participants will engage in activities to experience the people and places of the Civil Rights Movement. They will trace the Selma-to-Montgomery "Freedom Trail," visit key church sites and explore the archives and libraries at the Civil Rights Institute in Birmingham and Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery.
