Ida B. Wells, Lynching and Trayvon Martin Film and Discussion
06:00 PM - ?
Location: Camden Technology Center (601 Cooper Street, Camden NJ)
Moonstone Arts Center & Rowan University present Ida B. Wells, Lynching and Trayvon Martin Film and Discussion. The film "Ida B. Wells: A Passion for Justice" documents the dramatic life and turbulent times of the pioneering African American journalist, activist, suffragist and anti-lynching crusader of the post-Reconstruction period.
Of all the great civil rights leaders, Ida B. Wells is one of the least known - yet one of the most important. An activist, educator, writer, journalist, suffragette, and pioneering voice against the horror of lynching, Ida B. Wells-Barnett was one of the most important and well known leaders of the African American struggle at the turn of the twentieth century but is almost unknown today. Why is that? A panel discussion will follow the film screeing.
This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
Sponsored by Moonstone Arts Center and the follow Rowan University contributors: Departments of Philosophy & Religion, English, History; Rowan University at Camden; and the College of Humanities & Social Sciences.
