Cool blues and hot jazz combine in a toe-tapping celebration of jazz, friendship, and pure enjoyment!

Join us for a fun evening with crafts, games, and of course a read-aloud of this swinging story, plus: some feathered friends from the Cockadoodle Doo Chicken Show!

This event has unfortunately been cancelled and will be rescheduled at a later date. 

Monday, July 7, 6:00 pm, Civic Center Library

To mark the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, the National Endowment for the Humanities has developed a special project as part of its Bridging Cultures initiative: Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle. As part of this project, we will present the documentary The Loving Story.  The Loving Story is a story of love and the struggle for dignity set against the turbulent Civil Rights era in the U.S. The Lovings, an interracial couple, fell in love and married in 1958 but were soon arrested, tried, and convicted of the felony crime of “miscegenation.” Two lawyers from the ACLU took their case all the way to the Supreme Court.

After the film, Cassandra A. Spiels,  Macomb County Community College Librarian, will discuss the film and civil rights issues of today.

This program will be held in the conference room next to the Civic Center Library. Registration is required for this program. Please call 586.574.4564 to register. Refreshments will be served.

Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle 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.
