Join us as community leaders from the Dayton Africana Elders Council share with us stories and reflections of their work within the community to address social justice and civil rights issues over the years. The panelists will engage in a lively discussion with the audience to identify current social justice struggles in our community, and challenge us to think of ways to build community to achieve positive change.
This panel discussion 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. Seating is limited so plan to arrive early. After 6:30 pm visitors may park without a pass in "C" lot.
