The Abolitionists vividly brings to life the struggles of the men and women who led the battle to end slavery. A facilitated discussion of The Abolitionists will take place February 11, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. in Marianist Hall Studio 218, led by Dr. Jack Ling, Executive Director, Institutional Diversity and inclusion, Office of the Provost.

This film is part of a series of screenings, lectures, discussion forums and scholarly presentations given by the University Libraries which center on four documentaries with riveting new footage illustrating the history of civil rights in America. The Created Equal film series 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.

This event is free and open to the public. Visitors must stop at the parking booth off of Founders Lane and ask for a "Created Equal" event parking pass.
