Screening of Sweet Georgia Brown

November 12 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free
Sweet Georgia Brown

The director, Lawrence E. Walker, will be available to answer questions about the film after the screening. Mr. Walker’s informative film features Maj. Charity Adams Earley, Commander of the 6888th Central Postal Directory Battallion in World War II. The documentary explores the stories of some of the first black women to volunteer for military service during the second World War. They served with honor despite a 10% quota that limited the number of African Americans accepted into the services, and Jim Crow restrictions that kept platoons segregated from their white counterparts.

Admission is FREE. Donations are encouraged!
