History Colorado invites audiences to join Civil Rights leaders for five evenings of film, theater, and conversation examining seminal events of 1963. From the bombing of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church to the March on Washington and Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, 1963 was a pivotal year in the Civil Rights Movement. W.E.B DuBois wrote, "The problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color line." Is that true today? How far have we come? What have we learned over the past fifty years, and what remains to be done?
All programs will be held at 6 p.m. in the auditorium at the History Colorado Center, 1200 Broadway in Denver. Doors open at 5:30 pm.
Tickets are $4 for History Colorado members, $5 for the general public. They may be purchased online or by calling 303-866-2394.
