Panel Discussion: From George Wallace to New Orleans After Katrina: Southern Race and Politics on Film

November 18, 2014 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

wallacejacksonPlease join us in the Freedom Forum on Tuesday, November 18 at 4:30 pm for a panel discussion, using documentary films as the starting point for a larger conversation about how race relations have unfolded in Southern politics. Sharing clips from their own work, our guests will engage the legacies of African Americans who directly challenged Jim Crow, the white segregationists who resisted those challenges, and political actors of all races and approaches. The panelists will explore what has and has not changed in this country’s reckoning with civil rights and racial equality.
