This week, the LMU community is invited to join the library and the Office of Black Student Services for a two-part program and discussion.
Monday, February 23 join us for a screening of the Academy Award-winning film 12 Years a Slave, at 6 p.m. in Deja View Movie Lounge.
We hope you'll view the film in preparation to participate in the February 25 discussion about the film's themes of physical and psychological violence, labor exploitation, and family desecration and their contemporary relevance in society. (Note that it's not required to see the film to participate in the discussion!)
Please RSVP here. (LMU community members are welcome to bring non-LMU guests to the film screening - note that you will be asked to show your OneCard and sign your guest in.)
This program is part of Voices of the Civil War Speak at LMU, a semester-wide series of exhibitions and events designed to commemorate the sesquicentennial of the ending of the Civil War. It is also a part of the university's celebration and examination of Black History Month.
Voices of the Civil War Speak at LMU is made possible by the LMU Office of the President, the LMU Classics and History Departments, the Office of Black Student Services, and the William H. Hannon Library.
