In February, the Museum celebrates Black History Month with screenings of The Civil Rights Movement on Television: Images from the Collection of The Museum of Television & Radio. This Museum-produced screening highlights many significant events during the African-American struggle for equal rights in post?World War II America. Incorporating live coverage and documentary interpretation from the Museum?s collection, the compilation examines such critical issues as desegregation, the student movement, voter registration, and urban unrest, and follows movement leaders and ordinary individuals who, through their courage and action, made extraordinary changes in America. (90 minutes)

You can find more of the Museum?s programs about black history and culture during your visit to our library.
