The Flynn is pleased to be the host site of Community Cinema. Community Cinema is a community outreach offshoot of the PBS Series Independent Lens, which broadcasts different documentary films each month. The screenings held here will be 60-minute ‘preview’ versions of these films, followed by a community forum or panel discussion.
ABOUT THIS FILM:
By Bonnie Boswell
Whitney M. Young, Jr. was one of the most celebrated and contro-versial leaders of the civil rights era. As executive director of the National Urban League, he took the struggle for equality directly to the powerful white elite, gaining allies in business and government, including three presidents.
This project is a partnership of the Flynn Center, Vermont Public Television, and the OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute) at the University of Vermont.
