Martin Memorial Library will host a series of film screenings and a discussion of the film Freedom Riders over the course of several days in October. The film will be screened in two parts, on October 8 and October 15. A short discussion of the humanities themes featured in the film with Dr. Karin Zipf, East Carolina University, will take place at both of these events. On October 22, the Freedom Riders screenings will be reflected upon by Dr. Kenneth Zogry of UNC-Chapel Hill, who will deliver a lecture on the history of the long Civil Rights Movement. These events are part of Martin Memorial Library’s Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle public programming series.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information about attending, contact Ann Phelps.
Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle is made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities, as part of its Bridging Cultures initiative, in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. For more information about Created Equal, click here.
