Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle

The Cody Library is one of three Wyoming institutions awarded “Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle.” Scholar facilitated discussions will follow each documentary.

Screenings will be in Grizzly Hall at 2 p.m. on the following four Saturdays:

abolistionistFeb. 7, The Abolitionists chronicles a small group of moral reformers who in the 1830s launched one of the most ambitious social movements imaginable: the immediate emancipation of millions of African Americans held in bondage, at a time when slavery was one of the most powerful economic and political forces in the United States.  Historian Paul Rodger Fees, PhD and former curator of the Buffalo Bill Center of West will be the moderator for “The Abolitionists”  discussion.

 

slaveryFeb. 21, Slavery by Another Name Though slavery ended in the south after the Civil War, new forms of forced labor kept thousands of African Americans in bondage until the onset of World War II. Based on the 2008 Pulitzer Prize-winning book of the same title by Douglas Blackmon. Mary L. Keller, PhD will lead the “Slavery by Another Name” conversation. Keller is a lecturer in the Religious Studies Department and an adjunct for African American and Diaspora Studies at the University of Wyoming.

loving story small posterMar. 7, The Loving Story is the account of Richard and Mildred Loving, who were arrested in 1958 for violating Virginia’s ban on interracial marriage. Their struggle culminated in a landmark Supreme Court decision, Loving v. Virginia (1967) which overturned anti-miscegenation laws in the United States. Tracey Patton, PhD, a professor of African American and Diaspora Studies at the University of Wyoming will lead “The Loving Story” dialogue. Patton is the author of “Gender, Whiteness, and Power in Rodeo: Breaking Away from the Ties of Sexism and Racism.”

FREEDOM_TheatricalMar. 21, The Freedom Riders The Freedom Rides of 1961 were a pivotal moment in the long Civil Rights struggle that redefined America. Based on Raymond Arsenault’s recent book, this documentary film offers an inside look at the brave band of activists who challenged segregation in the Deep South. The Rev. Warren Murphy, a supporter and contemporary of the Freedom Riders will act as moderator for this conversation. As a member of the Southern Student Organizing Committee, Murphy was active in a 1966 voter registration campaign in Virginia

Created Equal is part of the Bridging Cultures initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities, produced in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. For more information visit createdequal.neh.gov.
