Black History Movie of the Week

Please join us this Friday, February 24, from 2:30-4:30 pm, for this week’s Black History movie. On December 1, 1955, a brave Alabama woman refused to give up her seat on a city bus and was arrested as a result. In response, for over 12 months, the local African-American population refused to use the city bus system. Come and witness the events that brought Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to the forefront of the American Civil Rights movement.
