Arts, Culture & Fun presents a screening of The Powerbroker by Bonnie Boswell part of Independent Lens, an Emmy® Award-winning weekly series airing on PBS.
Whitney Young was one of the major leaders of the civil rights movement. A man of great intellect and charm, he moved comfortably through the inner sanctums of power, working tirelessly to open opportunities for African Americans at a time when segregation was still a powerful force in many American institutions. Yet, today he is not as well remembered as other civil rights leaders, despite his many achievements on behalf of African Americans. The Powerbroker: Whitney Young’s Fight for Civil Rights tells the story of this great, unsung hero of the civil rights movement, a man who practiced Black Power in a radically different way.
Please note: this event has been re-scheduled from February 20, 2013.
