'Eyes On the Prize' Talking Circle: Awakenings (1954-56)

Sunday, May 15, 2022
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
South Courtyard

Discuss the themes and stories, and reflect upon "Awakenings," the first episode of this award-winning documentary series, in a professionally facilitated, courtyard setting.

Available to watch on Kanopy, "Awakenings" traces the individual acts of courage in 1954-6 that inspired Black Southerners to fight for their rights.

We're using a "talking circle" format to provide a safe, nonjudgmental place in which each participant has the opportunity to contribute as well as reflect and learn. Additional discussions are planned, based on other episodes, during June, July, and August.

although Eyes on the Prize is important for viewers of all ages, this discussion is intended for adults.

Online registration is closed.
