The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross: Episode 5 & 6: Rise! (1940-1968) & A More Perfect Union (1968-2013)

12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Poinciana Library
PC Multipurpose Room
Explore the evolution of the African-American people, as well as the multiplicity of cultural institutions, political changes, strategies, and religious and social perspectives they developed - forging their own history, culture and society against unimaginable odds. Commencing with the origins of slavery in Africa, the series moves through five centuries of remarkable historic events right up to the present - when America is led by a black president, yet remains a nation deeply divided by race.

By highlighting the tragedies, triumphs and contradictions of the black experience, the series reveals to viewers that the African-American community has never been a uniform entity, and that its members have been actively debating their differences from their first days in this country. Throughout the course of the series, viewers will see that the road to freedom for black people in America has not been linear, but more like the course of a river, full of loops and eddies, and occasionally reversing the current of progress.

February 4th: Episode 1: The Black Atlantic (1500-1800)
February 11th: Episode 2: The Age of Slavery (1800-1860)
February 18th: Episode 3 & 4: Into the Fire (1861-1896) & Making A Way Out of No Way (1897-1940)
February 25th: Episode 5 & 6: Rise! (1940-1968) & A More Perfect Union (1968-2013)
