History of Riverside Small Group Class

Facilitated By Riverside Archivists Diane Russo and Vince Kelley

In honor of Riverside’s 90th Anniversary, this survey-style course discusses key points in Riverside’s history in the past 90 years, with each class centered around a specific theme. Additionally, for each class, we will bring archival materials to pass around/examine. Vincent Kelley and Diane Russo will likely co-teach the class, with some special guests for different topics. We’ll explore themes such as: MLK at Riverside and Civil Rights, Harry Emerson Fosdick, Riverside’s Building, art and architecture, Maranatha and LGBTQ history at Riverside, William Sloane Coffin and Vietnam/Disarmament and Sanctuary and more!
