CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) -

Charlottesville's Office of Human Rights will honor the work of some the city's civil rights activists Monday. A University of Virginia Curry School professor will give a presentation to recognize the work of "The Consultative Resource Center for School Desegregation."

The center prepared school workers and teachers for desegregation during the 1960’s and 1970’s. Organizers say given Virginia's history, just creating that center was a big accomplishment at the time.

Charlene Greene, from the Office of Human Rights said, “I think we're going to hear a lot of stories out of people who did a lot of hard work back then.”

The presentation starts at 4:00 Monday afternoon inside Charlottesville City Hall.  A proclamation will also be read at the start of Monday night's council meeting, which starts at 7:00.
