The South Brunswick Public Library, supported by the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, will host a screening and public discussion of the film Freedom Riders. Following the film screening, there will be a moderated public conversation about the humanities themes featured in the film. Christopher Fisher, Associate Professor of History at the College of New Jersey, will moderate this discussion. This event is part of New Jersey Council for the Humanities’ Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle public programming series.

This event is free and open to the public. Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle was made possible, in part, by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, as part of its Bridging Cultures initiative, in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.
