‘Freedom Riders’ film showing in Jervis Feb. 23
The Jervis Public Library, 613 N. Washington St., will screen the Emmy Award-winning documentary film “Freedom Riders” Thursday, Feb. 23 at 6 p.m. The film will be screened in the library’s auditorium.
Admission is free.
“Freedom Riders” tells the story of white and black protesters who would ride buses designated as whites-only and who responded with non-violence when confronted for their civil disobedience. Tom Bennett of The National Abolition Hall of Fame and Museum in Peterboro will lead a discussion on the film at its conclusion.
The film is one of three of the “Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle” programs sponsored by the Rome chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the National Abolition Hall of Fame in Peterboro, and the Jervis library.
The library will screen the other films in the series, “The Loving Story” and “Slavery by Another Name,” in the coming months.
