Created Equal Civil Rights Film Series in Laramie @ University of Wyoming College of Law, room 186
Feb 12 @ 6:00 pm – Mar 5 @ 7:00 pm

Discussions of the films will be moderated by University of Wyoming Faculty Kerry Pimblott, Erin Forbes, and Tracy Patton.

Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle brings four outstanding films on the long civil rights movement to communities across the United States. As part of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH)’s Bridging Cultures initiative, Created Equal will encourage communities across the country to revisit the history of civil rights in America and to reflect on the ideals of freedom and equality that have helped bridge deep racial and cultural divides in our civic life. Four outstanding documentary films, spanning the period from the 1830s to the 1960s, are the centerpiece for this project. Each of these films was supported by NEH, and each tells remarkable stories of individuals who challenged the social and legal status quo of deeply rooted institutions, from slavery to segregation.
