The Whole Staircase: Films Celebrating 400 Years of African American History & Culture
The film “Voting Matters” will be shown on October 1, 2019 in the Campus Library at 9:30am and 12:30pm.
More than 50 years after the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most extensive pieces of civil rights legislation, people of color across the United States still are engaged in a battle to protect their right to vote. Voting Matters follows civil rights attorney Donita Judge as she helps several voters in Ohio cast ballots even in the face of recently enacted voter restrictions.
All are welcome to this Free event.
The event is part of 400 Years of African American History, a “commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the arrival of Africans in the English colonies, at Point Comfort, Virginia, in 1619.”
