'Eyes on the Prize' Talking Circle: Ain't Scared of Your Jails (1960-61)

Sunday, July 17, 2022
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
South Courtyard

Discuss the themes and stories, and reflect upon "Ain't Scared of Your Jails," the third episode of this award-winning documentary series. Professionally facilitated discussion in the courtyard.

Available to watch on Kanopy, "Ain't Scared of Your Jails" highlights the role college students played in lunch counter sit-ins and discusses how the Freedom Riders were met with violence.

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. An additional discussion, based on another episode, is planned for August.

Although Eyes on the Prize is important for viewers of all ages, this program is intended for adults and teens.

Online registration is closed.
