'Eyes on the Prize' Talking Circle: No Easy Walk (1961-1963)
Sunday, August 21, 2022
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Discuss the themes and stories, and reflect upon "No Easy Walk," the fourth episode of this award-winning documentary series. Professionally facilitated discussion in the courtyard.
Available to watch on Kanopy, "No Easy Walk" follows along while The Civil Rights Movement discovers the power of mass demonstrations, and the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. emerges as the most visible leader. The triumphant March on Washington, DC., under King’s leadership, shows mounting national support for civil rights. President John F. Kennedy proposes the Civil Rights Act.
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, based on other episodes, were scheduled during May, June, and July.
Although Eyes on the Prize is important for viewers of all ages, this program is intended for adults and teens.
