Conversations about Race in American History- "Birth of a Movement" Documentary screening and discussion
Start Date: 10/21/2017Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Date: 10/21/2017End Time: 9:00 PM

Event Description:

In 1915, Boston-based African American newspaper editor and activist William M. Trotter waged a battle against D.W. Griffith’s technically groundbreaking but notoriously Ku Klux Klan-friendly The Birth of a Nation, unleashing a fight that still rages today about race relations, media representation, and the power and influence of Hollywood. Birth of a Movement, based on Dick Lehr's book The Birth of a Movement: How Birth of a Nation Ignited the Battle for Civil Rights, captures the backdrop to this prescient clash between human rights, freedom of speech, and a changing media landscape.

Following the screening there will be a panel discussion with people involved in the film.
