Cinema Cafe-Civil Rights Documentaries & Discussion

Date: 11/2/2016
Start Time: 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM

Come and watch three short documentaries the United States government made about Civil Rights era! During the 1960s, the United States Information Agency made hundreds of films for distribution abroad, primarily to counter anti-American propaganda. Rather than showing America in a completely positive light, these films show many of the nation’s flaws before discussing how the government and the people were attempting to address these problems at the time. Lights go down at 6:00pm and popcorn will be served.
