Regions Financial Hosts International Civil And Human Rights Panel Discussion Supporting 50 Years Forward Commemoration Of The Civil Rights Movement

In support of the 50 Years Forward commemoration of the civil rights movement events of 1963 in Birmingham, Regions Financial Corporation (NYSE:RF) is hosting a panel discussion focused on the past, present and future of civil and human rights. The event will be webcast and available to the public on

Titled "Beyond Suffering and Suffrage: The Past, Present and Future of International Civil and Human Rights,” the preeminent panel will be moderated by Gayle King, co-host of "CBS This Morning" and editor-at-large of O, the Oprah Magazine. Distinguished panelists are former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, U.S. Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, former U.S. Attorney Doug Jones and retired U.S. District Judge U.W. Clemon.

“This week all of us at Regions join with our community to commemorate a pivotal time in our nation’s history,” said Grayson Hall, chairman, president and CEO of Regions Financial. “While we remember the past, we also look to the future as we embrace the spirit of 50 Years Forward. It is our privilege to provide a forum for our customers and the communities we serve to engage in productive dialogue about civil and human rights, and we thank our distinguished guests and panelists for sharing their experience and insight.”

The weekend of Sept. 13-15, 2013, has been designated as Empowerment Weekend in Birmingham to commemorate the events of 1963, particularly the tragic bombing of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church. The panel discussion hosted by Regions provides perspective on the Birmingham experience and its impact on furthering the cause of civil and human rights in the nation and around the world.

“In 1963, the nation watched as tragedy struck and turmoil flared in my hometown of Birmingham, Alabama,” said Condoleezza Rice, former U.S. Secretary of State. “We have come a long way since those days but there is still work to do. This week, we will remember the sacrifices of our past and celebrate our progress but most importantly we will reaffirm our bright expectations of the future.”
