Discussion Facilitated by Dr. Jonathan Chism, Assistant Professor of History
This film explores the last five decades of black history since the civil rights era and the death of Martin Luther King Jr. Narrated by the esteemed Henry Louis Gates Jr., the film encourages deep reflection on questions such as: “How far have we come toward racial equality since the civil rights era? What does it mean to be black today? How have we, as a nation, elected a black President while events like those in Ferguson continue to occur?”
