Introduction and discussion by Hope Amason, Associate Director of the Museum of Culture & Environment

Brooks Library in collaboration with Africana and Black Studies, Museum of Culture and Environment, and Student Success is celebrating Black History Month with a three part film and discussion series entitled Created Equal Film Series: America’s Civil Rights Struggle.

"Freedom Riders" is a 2010 documentary about the more than four hundred Americans who participated in the Civil Rights Movement interstate busing protest campaign. A bold and dangerous experiment designed to awaken the conscience of a complacent nation, these self-proclaimed 'Freedom Riders' challenged a racially segregated society.

"Created Equal Film Series: America’s Civil Rights Struggle" is made possible through 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.
