CBU to host second film in documentary series

RIVERSIDE, Calif.  (April 8, 2014)--California Baptist University will host a screening of Slavery by Another Name on Thursday, April 10. The film is the second in the Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle documentary film series, presented with the support of a grant from the National Endowment of the Humanities and the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.

“Each film in the Created Equal series highlights both the intentional and unintentional bravery of civil rights activists from a variety of backgrounds,” said Dr. Kenya A. Davis-Hayes, associate professor of American history and coordinator of the series. “As the community views these films over the course of 2014, I pray we are inspired to be as bold in our search for a better society as the people highlighted in the documentaries.”

The film will be shown at 7 p.m. in the Innovators Auditorium of CBU’s Business Building on the university’s main campus. It will be followed by a panel that includes Brian Levin, professor of criminal justice at California State University, San Bernardino, and director of the Center for the Study of Hate & Extremism, where he analyzes hate crime, terrorism and legal issues.

Other documentaries that will be shown during 2014 include “The Loving Story” and “Freedom Riders.”
