The County College of Morris Department of Communications presents The Legacy Project. The Legacy Project is an educational opportunity for moderated academic discussions. The initiative intends to provide scholastic opportunities for students outside of the traditional classroom setting. We strive to connect learning with life.

This inaugural edition of The Legacy Project is a discussion of the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington and the legacy of the Civil Rights era. Speakers include:

- Theodora Smiley-Lacey, a civil rights activist and retired schoolteacher who hails from Montgomery, Alabama, where she worked directly with Martin Luther King in civil rights activism. She eventually moved to Teaneck, New Jersey, where she played a major role in successfully integrating the public school system.
- Arnold E. Brown, a civil rights activist who went on to become Bergen County, New Jersey's first African-American Assemblyman.
- Prof. J. Ayettu Apwah, a professor in CCM's Enlish & Philosophy Department who was born and raised in Ghana and spoke of the role of the poet in the dismantling of apartheid.
- Shawn Aiken, a graduate of CCM, freelance journalist and blogger.
