Learning, Celebrating Our History

More than 100 students, faculty, staff and St. Ambrose community supporters joined in the annual silent March to Remember on Jan. 17 as a beginning to a two-week celebration of the Civil Rights Movement at St. Ambrose.

The largest of seven such contemplative marches led to Christ the King Chapel, where the eighth marker on the Davenport Civil Rights Walking Tour was unveiled. The new marker celebrates the role St. Ambrose and Ambrosian legends such as the Fathers O'Connor and Msgr. Marvin Mottet '52, '82 (HON) played in the advance of the movement.

"St. Ambrose was quite a mover and shaker in Davenport and really made a big difference in civil rights here," past director of the Davenport Civil Rights Commission Judy Morrell told reporter Carie Kuehn. "They've done so many things for civil rights they really deserve recognition for all the work they've done."
