"The Civil War" by Ken Burns

Join us for this film screening in celebration of the 2011 Black History Month theme: "African Americans & the Civil War."   We'll show the first part of this 5 disc series, "The Cause" at 6:00 pm on Tuesday, February 8. The film will last approximately 90 minutes. If you like, stay afterwards to discuss your reactions with fellow viewers.

Ken Burns' award-winning documentary actually took longer to complete than the Civil War itself, but it is a masterpiece of primary source material and narration of real people's experiences during the war.  Check out more info on the film here. http://www.pbs.org/civilwar/
