Focusing Our Resources for Community Enlightenment (F.O.R.C.E.) will host a screening and discussion of the film Freedom Riders at Onondaga Community College in Syracuse, New York, as part of their Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle programming series. A public conversation about broader issues of injustice will follow a screening of clips from the film. Mark D. Muhammad, Associate Professor, Onondaga Community College, will help lead the discussion and will tie in local issues of relevance to the humanities themes featured in the film.
