AARL’s Community Dialogue and Discussions are every Wednesday at 6 pm, free and open to the general public.

It’s Black History Month!

In celebration of Black History Month and throughout the month of February, the AARL will screen intriguing films or documentaries, exploring the history of the Fifteenth Amendment, voter suppression and purging, and the right of blacks to the ballot after the Civil War.

ASALH’s 2020 theme African Americans and the Vote emphasizes the sesquicentennial of the Fifteenth Amendment (1870) and the right of black men to the ballot after the Civil War. During this event, Library screens a film or documentary exploring this year’s Black History Month theme– a discussion portion follows each screening.

Films screened during this program reflect and explore the ongoing struggle on the part of both black men and black women for the right to vote.

The month’s theme has a rich and long history, which begins at the turn of the nineteenth century— in the era of the Early Republic, with the states’ passage of laws that democratized the vote for white men while disfranchising free blacks. All documentaries and films are rated PG-13 and minorities should be accompanied by a mature guardian or parental unit.
