Film & Discussion: "Up From the Bottoms"

Tuesday, January 29, 2013 - 12:30 pm

Screening and discussion of the documentary film Up from the Bottoms, the story of the massive migration of African Americans from the rural south to the prosperous north during World War II years and beyond.  This event is part of Dreams Deferred ... Dreams Held Fast, a film and discussion series sponsored by the Center for Multicultural Education and the Rod Library in association with the UNI 2012-13 Reaching for Higher Ground project theme The Search for an American Dream.  Film will be used as the basis for personal reflection and dialogue in addressing the nature and meaning of “American Dream” relative to issues of marginalization and privilege. Participants will be challenged to examine their own beliefs and assumptions about being American today.   The screening also serves as the culmination of the Campus/Community Book Discussion of The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration by Isabel Wilkerson.
