As the nation marks historic anniversaries of the March on Washington, Created Equal brings together four nationally-acclaimed documentary films on the long Civil Rights movement in America. Created Equal is part of the Bridging Cultures initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities, produced in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. Thanks to Jennifer George, Adults Services Librarian, Atchison Library was one of only 500 organizations nationwide selected to receive grant funding for this project.
The films will be shown at the library during the months of November and December. Click here for a printable schedule of the dates and times the films will be shown. In February 2014, a series of discussions about the films will be lead by renowned Kansas scholars. The schedule for these discussions will be announced at a later date.
For additional information, or to watch the films online, please click here or call Jennifer at 913-367-1902, ext 212.
