February One: Free Screening (Presented by PNC Bank)
January 29 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Ever mindful of North Carolina’s vital role in the important lessons and meaningful changes resulting from the American Civil Rights Movement, the Carolina Theatre of Durham will host a free-to-the-public screening of February One: The Story of the Greensboro Four — the stirring documentary about the landmark lunch counter sit-in protest by Ezell Blair, David Richmond, Franklin McCain and Joseph McNeil in 1960 — in the venue’s Fletcher Hall on Wednesday, January 29 at 7:30 p.m.
A 2003 film by Rebecca Cerese and Steven Channing, February One is told through the first-hand accounts of those citizens who experienced the four brave college freshmen protest segregation practices at a Greensboro Woolworth’s in 1960. The documentary has been nationally broadcast on Independent Lens on PBS and at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.
