Freedom Riders tells the story of the Civil Rights Movement interstate busing protest campaign. Facilitated discussion of Freedom Riders will take place February 25 at 7:00 p.m. in Marianist Hall Studio 218, led by Dr. Thomas Morgan, Associate Professor, Department of English.

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.

Presentation of Freedom Riders is also supported in part by Rosewood Arts Centre, a division of the City of Kettering's Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts department.

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.
