A screening of the PBS documentary "Freedom Riders" will take place Monday, April 21st at 6 p.m. Dr. Christopher Whitt, professor of political science at Augustana, will lead a discussion following the film.

"Freedom Riders" tells the terrifying, moving, and suspenseful story of a time when white and black volunteers riding a bus into the Deep South risked being jailed, beaten, or killed as white local and state authorities ignored or encouraged violent attacks.

This program is presented as part of Moline Library's six week series Created Equal/Changing America, an examination of our nation's civil rights history. For more information, visit molinelibrary.com/createdequal

Presented by Dr. Nancy Huse
Wednesday, April 23, 7 p.m.
