The Abolitionists
Created Equal Film Screening
Sunday, September 21 at 2PM

As the third film of the Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle four part series, the West Orange Library will screen the first part of the award winning PBS documentary "The Abolitionists," which vividly brings to life the struggles of the men and women who led the battle to end slavery. The film will be introduced by Dr. Stephanie Steplight Johnson, Dean of Liberal Arts at Essex County College,
who will lead a community discussion after the screening

Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle is made possible through a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, as part of its Bridging Cultures initiative, in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. This event is locally sponsored by the West Orange African Heritage Organization.
