On Thursday February 4th from 7-9 PM University Libraries will host a movie night celebrating the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  

The film, King: A Filmed Record Part 1 (2012), is a monumental documentary that follows Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. from 1955 to 1968, in his rise from regional activist to world-renowned leader of the Civil Rights movement. Rare footage of King's speeches, protests, and arrests are interspersed with scenes of other high-profile supporters and opponents of the cause, punctuated by heartfelt testimonials by some of Hollywood's biggest stars.

The film will be shown in the Camellia room (Gorgas 2020). There will be a limit of 25 students present, and a discussion of the film will be held in the Camellia room, afterwards Led by Dr. Lorraine Madway, Associate Dean for Special Collections with University Libraries.

Snacks/coffee or drinks are permitted, but masks are required to be worn throughout the viewing when not eating or drinking.   If the event reaches the 25 person capacity, a waitlist will be generated and we will email individuals with options for viewing the film asynchronously. We will also provide individually wrapped snacks for students as they exit the showing.

Reservations and Masks are required to attend.
