FAMILIES ARE INVITED TO VIEW SELMA: THE BRIDGE TO THE BALLOT

February 13, 2017

THE LEGACY THEATRE, 101 E. LAWRENCE AVENUE, SPRINGFIELD
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2017
6:00 - 8:00 PM
Selma: The Bridge to the Ballot, a 40-minute documentary, is the story of a courageous group of Alabama students and teachers who, along with other activists, fought a nonviolent battle to win voting rights for African Americans in the South. Standing in their way: a century of Jim Crow, a resistant and segregationist state, and a federal government slow to fully embrace equality. By organizing and marching bravely in the face of intimidation, violence, arrest and even murder, these change-makers achieved one of the most significant victories of the civil rights era.
THERE WILL BE A 30-MINUTE ROUND TABLE DISCUSSION IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE DOCUMENTARY
ADMISSION IS FREE
THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR CO-SPONSOR: THE FAITH COALITION FOR THE COMMON GOOD
