California Baptist University is proud to announce that it will be celebrating the 150-year anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation by hosting the “Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle” documentary film series with the support of the National Endowment of the Humanities and the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. Featuring the documentaries, “The Abolitionists,” “Slavery by Another Name,” “The Loving Story,” and “Freedom Riders,” over the course of 2014, this series will encourage our Riverside community to explore the nation’s civil rights heritage which has contributed to our modern concepts of democracy, equality, freedom and citizenship.
The first film in our list of screenings is PBS’ “The Abolitionists” on February 20th at 7pm which will be followed by a panel discussion of noted CBU scholars— Amy Stumpf, Associate Professor of Society and Religion, and Daniel Skubik, Professor of Law, Ethics & Humanities. Both have a unique perspective of our nation’s legacy of human rights activism, as well as modern efforts.
Admission is complimentary but space is limited.
