Founded in 2013 on the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, the Festival features film screenings, discussions with filmmakers, performances, and panels on the groundbreaking activism of the 1960s as well as the movement’s current work towards justice and equality. The festival uses the power of film, music, scholarship, and the arts to honor the untold stories and unsung heroes of the civil rights movement.
The fifth anniversary edition of the Festival will include programming on civil rights activism on college campuses, women’s leadership of the movement, and civil rights and social protest. Special guests and speakers include Diahann Carroll, Vanita Gupta, President and CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights; and Former Attorney General Eric Holder.
