In the first of four screenings and discussions in our Created Equal: America's Civil Rights Struggle series, this movie interweaves historical dramatization with traditional documentary about the abolitionist movement in the United States. Following the screening, Prithi Kanakamedala, Project Historian for Brooklyn Abolitionists/In Pursuit of Freedom, and Manisha Sinha, Professor of Afro-American Studies at UMass Amherst, lead the discussion.
Created Equal: 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.
