Created Equal: The Civil Rights Movement Then and Now
March 7, 2014  This spring, we will offer an exciting series of programs built around two of the provided films. These powerful documentaries, The Loving Story and Freedom Riders, include dramatic scenes of incidents in the 150-year effort to achieve equal rights for all in the United States. The series will be comprised of 6 programs in March and April: 2 film screenings, 2 lectures, and 2 panel discussions. Each of these programs will address aspects of the Civil Rights Movement – locally and nationally – to celebrate the importance of its legacy 50 years on, and to create dialogue about where we find ourselves today in relation to the same issues.
