The Road to Black Power: Film Screening

  • To
  • Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center
Lowndes County and The Road to Black Power

The Frederick Douglass Center for Leadership Through the Humanities and the Department of African American and Africana Studies present a special screening of Lowndes County and the Road to Black Power, a documentary that tells the story of the local movement and young Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) organizers who fought not just for voting rights, but for Black Power, in Lowndes County, Alabama, a rural, impoverished town with a vicious history of racist terrorism.

The event will include a Q&A with three SNCC veteran organizers (Judy Richardson, Courtland Cox, Jennifer Lawson) and two UMD graduate students (Jessica Rucker from American Studies and Amber Jonson from Education) and is open to the community.

Breakfast will begin at 10 a.m. and lunch will be provided.
