Created Equal Film Screening: "Mississippi Burning"

Created Equal Film Screening: "Mississippi Burning"

Join film historian Doug Deuchler to see and discuss "Mississippi Burning," the film story of two FBI agents who struggle to breach the conspiracy of silence in a small southern town while investigating the murders of three civil rights workers in 1964. This film is based on an actual case.

This film, the second of three feature films, is part of the "Created Equal: America's Civil Rights Struggle" series of film, panel discussions and author programs which continues through March.

This series 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.
