Charlevoix Public Library to host 'Created Equal' film series – Petoskey News-Review

CHARLEVOIX — The Charlevoix Public Library will host the Created Equal film series, from the National Endowment for the Humanities, every third Saturday starting in January and running until April.
Each film in this series tackles issues of equality, the law and civil rights. The viewings will take place at 1 p.m. in the library’s Community Room and will include a discussion with Professor Charles McCaffrey of North Central Michigan College. 
The series schedule includes:
Jan. 21: “The Abolitionists” — Called by many names, the abolitionists tore the nation apart in order to create a more perfect union. Men and women, black and white, Northerners and Southerners, poor and wealthy, these passionate anti-slavery activists fought body and soul in the most important civil rights crusade in American history.  
Feb. 18: “Slavery by Another Name” — A documentary that recounts the many ways in which American slavery persisted as a practice many decades after its supposed abolition.  
March 18: “Freedom Riders” — Renowned director Stanley Nelson chronicles the inspirational story of American civil rights activists’ peaceful fight against racial segregation on buses and trains in the 1960s.  
April 15: “Loving Story” — In 1958, Richard and Mildred Loving were arrested for violating Virginia’s anti-miscegenation laws, eventually leading to a landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision on interracial marriage. Alternate location: Coeling Computer Center
