Media Studies presents the premiere of student films about the Civil Rights movement.

In the spring of 2013, UAB Media students went into the Birmingham community to meet Movement leaders and foot soldiers. In a series of documentary films, they share their personal, intimate accounts of some of the most dramatic events of the 1950s and 1960s.

The films to be screened: “Columns of Justice: Civil Rights Activism at Miles College” by Lacey Kennedy and Emmett Christolear; “Seeds of Hope” by Kaylyn Alexander, Xuxa Baptiste and Michael Locke; “The Klan Was the Law” by Clarence Lockett and Daniel Twieg; “Out of their Seats, Into the Streets” by Scott Hodnett and Amanda Khorramabadi; “Birmingham’s Boycott” by Nathan Ennis and Zoe Zaslawsky; “Transmission Freedom” by Bryan Bailey and Amber Taylor; and “Schism ‘63” by Nicholas Price.
