Documentaries & Discussions

The Gardner-Harvey Library has been awarded a grant in the last year by the National Endowment of the Humanities and The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.  The Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle grant ( ) will make possible four public screenings and discussions of documentaries, facilitated by a Miami scholar. 

Dr. Brian Domino will launch the series with The Loving Story which explores the legislative ban of interracial marriage until one couple’s story reached the U.S. Supreme Court, on Thursday 2/13/14 from 6-7:30 PM, CCC 142. 

Then Dr. Caryn Neumann will facilitate Freedom Riders, the second documentary which explores the story of volunteers who challenged interracial segregation practices on interstate travel in 1961 by sitting where they pleased on buses traveling to the Deep South, on Thursday 4/3/14, from 7-9 PM, CCC 142. 

Please join us for these and additional programs in 2014, sponsored by the Gardner-Harvey Library.  If you would like to screen all 4 documentaries in abbreviated form, please watch these clips, with total running time of 43 minutes:
