The nationwide uprising for racial justice could spur fundamental shifts in how Americans remember and reckon with the past. Join us to learn how your library can play a constructive role by hosting a virtual film screening and discussion program.

In this webinar, participants will hear from the librarian who led the writing of a community discussion guide for “An Outrage,” a Smithsonian-premiered, award-winning documentary film about the history and legacy of lynching in the American South.

Participants in this session will learn how to:

  • Plan a successful screening
  • Engage with local scholars
  • Write questions that will foster open and respectful discussion

Funding for this webinar has been provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act economic stabilization plan.
