At the River I Stand @ the Lincoln Theater
June 19 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
At the River I Stand, presented in conjunction with Lincoln Theater
Monday, June 19, 2:00 p.m.
Lincoln Theater and Skidompha Library’s Chats With Champions is pleased to welcome filmmaker Carolyn Crowder for a free screening of her documentary film, At The River, and post-screening talkback. In recognition of Juneteenth, a national holiday commemorating the emancipation of enslaved African Americans, the film “At The River” provides a snapshot of the history of racism in the American South. This free screening and talkback with Carolyn Crowder is intended to share her story and that of the Presbyterian Ministers who stood up for what they knew was right during a time of so many horrific wrongs being committed due to racist beliefs. On Juneteenth, we celebrate the freedom of those who were so wronged, and the bravery of these white ministers who took costly stands during the Civil Rights era in the Deep South… and are reminded that the work is never done.
