Join the Milwaukee Public Library and America's Black Holocaust Museum (ABHM) for films and discussions on the past, present and future of civil rights in America. The Created Equal Film Series uses the power of documentary films to encourage community discussion of America's civil rights history.
The Freedom Rides of 1961 were a pivotal moment in the long Civil Rights struggle that redefined America. Based on Raymond Arsenault's recent book, this documentary film offers an inside look at the brave band of activists who challenged segregation in the Deep South.
Join us Monday, May 12th at 5:15 p.m. at Bay View Library for the film followed by a discussion facilitated by Dr. Russell Brooker of ABHM.
The Created Equal film series is made possible through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, as part of its Bridging Cultures initiative and in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.
