A TIME FOR JUSTICE: AMERICA’S CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT

The Academy Award™ winning film A Time for Justice depicts the battle for civil rights as told by its foot soldiers. They rode where they weren’t supposed to ride; walked where they weren’t supposed to walk; sat where they weren’t supposed to sit; and they stood their ground until they won their freedom.

1:30pm

MIGHTY TIMES: THE LEGACY OF ROSA PARKS Behind every great protest movement is a community of citizens whose courage and dedication leads the charge for social change. These ‘foot soldiers’, often ignored in headlines and history books, are ordinary people who accomplish extraordinary things. Mighty Times is the story of how one woman, Rosa Parks, through a single act of defiance on a Montgomery bus, inspired a community to unite in its opposition to segregation and change America.

2:30pm

MIGHTY TIMES: THE CHILDREN’S MARCH

The Children’s March tells the story of how the young people of Birmingham, Alabama, braved fire hoses and police dogs in 1963 and brought segregation to its knees. Their heroism moved President Kennedy to introduce the Civil Rights Act of 1964, a key piece of federal legislation that transformed not just the South, but the entire nation.

3:30pm

SELMA: THE BRIDGE TO THE BALLOT

The Bridge to the Ballot is the true story of the forgotten heroes in the fight for voting rights for African Americans – the courageous students and teachers of Selma, Alabama, who stood up against injustice in the face of intimidation, arrests and violence. By organizing and marching bravely, these change-makers achieved one of the most significant victories of the Civil Rights Era.
