Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center Library Announcements

What's new at the NMBCC Library?

Film Screening in the Library, Created Equal: America's Civil Rights Struggle

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. NEH has partnered with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History to develop programmatic and support materials for the screening sites.

The Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center Library is one of 473 institutions across the country awarded a set of four films and instructional materials 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. Freedom Riders received and Emmy in 2012, and the Loving Story and the Abolitionists have been nominated for Emmys in 2013.

The Created Equal film set is made possible through a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, as part of its Bridging Culture initiative, in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute American History. We are pleased to receive a grant from NEH to provide programming around these films. Deloice Holliday is the principal investigator for the grant.
