Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle is an initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities that uses the power of documentary films to encourage community discussion of America’s civil rights history. The John G. Riley Museum is one of only 473 institutions across the country awarded a set of four films chronicling the history of the civil rights movement. The powerful documentaries, The Abolitionists, Slavery by Another Name, Freedom Riders, and The Loving Story, include dramatic scenes of incidents in the 150-year effort to achieve equal rights for all. Clips from all four films will be previewed during this feature film presentation to introduce the Created Equal series to the local community. We are pleased to receive a grant from NEH to provide programming around these meaningful films.
