"Dirt And Deeds In Mississippi uncovers the largely unknown and pivotal role played by Black landowning families in the deep South who controlled over a million acres in the 1960s. They were prepared to put their land and their lives on the line in the fight for racial equality and the right to vote in America’s most segregated and violently racist state."

Join us for a special screening and discussion following this film about one of our unsung heroes of the civil rights era. “On November 20, 2013, Bayard Rustin was posthumously awarded the prestigious Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Barack Obama. Who was this man? Bayard Rustin is best remembered as the organizer of the 1963 March on Washington, one of the largest nonviolent protests ever held in the United States. His activism for peace, racial equality, economic justice and human rights, and how he navigated through his life and career as an openly gay man are the themes of this portrait.”
