Duke premiere of award-winning film "February One" on Thursday, February 26--POSTPONED--New Date TBA

The Lilly Library and the John Hope Franklin Collection of African and African American Documentation, both part of Duke's Perkins Library System, are presenting "February One" at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 26, at the Richard A. White Lecture Hall on East Campus, adjacent to the East Duke Building. The film uses firsthand accounts of the events that took place at a Woolworth lunch counter to document one volatile winter in Greensboro, NC. The Greensboro sit-in served as a blueprint for non-violent protests throughout the 1960s and eventually led to a change in public accomodation laws in North Carolina. Following the screening there will be a discussion, with participants including the filmmakers, Duke faculty members, and William H. Chafe, dean of Arts and Sciences, who is interviewed in the film. The event will conclude with a reception.
