College Receives The Created Equal Grant  

Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle Film Screenings at Northeast Lakeview College  

San Antonio, TX—To mark the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s March on Washington, Northeast Lakeview College will offer a series of film screenings and community panel discussions centered around the following four documentaries: The Abolitionists, Slavery by Another Name, The Loving Story, and Freedom Riders.  

 

The Created Equal film set is m ade possible through a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), as part of its Bridging Cultures initiative, in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. It uses the power of documentary films to encourage community discussion of America’s civil rights history. NEH has partnered with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History to develop programmatic and support materials for the sites.

 

Northeast Lakeview College is one of 473 institutions across the country awarded a set of four films chronicling the history of the civil rights movement. The powerful documentaries, The Abolitionists, Slavery by Another Name, The Loving Story, and Freedom Riders, include dramatic scenes of incidents in the 150-year effort to achieve equal rights for all.  Freedom Riders received an Emmy in 2012, and The Loving Story and The Abolitionists have been nominated for Emmys in 2013.   

  

Northeast Lakeview College will feature the four documentaries as follows:

The Abolitionists – 180 minutes total, 3 parts 54 minutes each

                October 3 and 10, 2013 @ 6:00 pm

Slavery by Another Name – 90 minutes

                February 4, 2014 @ 6:00 pm

The Loving Story – 77 minutes

                October 7, 2014 @ 6:00 pm

Freedom Riders – 120 minutes

                February 3 and 10, 2015 @ 6:00 pm

The four documentaries will feature riveting new footage illustrating the history of civil rights in America. The films and panel discussions, will be incorporated into College activities surrounding Hispanic Heritage Month and Black History Month. Tracey Mendoza, dean of learning resources who is the College’s project coordinator on the grant, says “ the college will use library resources to extend the conversations sparked by the films and will raise awareness of the national impact of the Civil Rights struggle.” 

“We are pleased to receive a grant from NEH to provide programming around these films,” says Dr. Eric Reno, Northeast Lakeview College president. The grant is a great way to increase knowledge of the local civil rights history and the role played by San Antonio citizens including  the Reverend Claude Black and Rosie Perez; and promote activism to ameliorate the effects of our racially divided past.” 

Each of the films was produced with NEH support, and each tells remarkable stories of individuals who challenged the social and legal status quo of deeply rooted institutions, from slavery to segregation. Created Equal programs bring communities together to revisit our shared history and help bridge deep racial and cultural divides in American civic life.
