Tuesday, January 31st at 5:00pm, 335A Case Hall
Join us for a viewing of Episode 1 of
Widely regarded as the best documentary (and some would say the best film, period) on the U.S. Civil Rights Movement
Watching and discussing episodes of this series is part of Prof. Gene Burns's Honors option for MC 380 and MC 382, but all are welcome to join us to learn about a part of history everyone should know. The first episode is about an hour long, and there will be discussion afterwards: Those not in the Honors option are welcome to join the discussion but are welcome simply to listen, as well.
Episode 1: "Awakenings (1954-1956)"
"Individual acts of courage inspire black Southerners to fight for their rights: Mose Wright testifies against the white men who murdered young Emmett Till, and Rosa Parks refuses to give up her bus seat to a white man in Montgomery, Alabama."
