What the Gay Rights Movement Learned from the Civil Rights Movement

When: Sun., June 18, 2-4 p.m. 2017

In 2014, filmmaker Yoruba Richen gave a TED Talk titled “What the Gay Rights Movement Learned from the Civil Rights Movement,” which was filmed as a documentary of the same name. As an African American and member of the LGBT community, Richen explores how the two struggles intertwine and propel each other forward and seeks to dispel a myth about their points of conflict. In celebration of Pride Month, Igo Library hosts a screening of the film, to be followed by a discussion.
