Black History Month Film Showing and Discussion on Feb. 20

February is Black History Month!

In recognition, the Department of Criminal Justice will host a film showing of the critically acclaimed documentary entitled "Seizing Justice: The Greensboro Four" on Tuesday, Feb. 20, at 11 a.m. in Bio-Tech Room 352 on the Middletown campus. A brief discussion will follow.

This film chronicles the courage of four, young African-American college students who, in 1960, walked into a popular national chain store and simply ordered a cup of coffee. As they expected, they were denied service because of the color of their skin. But this event would go on to spur an entire movement, across the nation, that ultimately would help put an end to racial segregation in America.

Please come join us as we watch this powerful film about people who challenged the status quo and effected great change. 

For more information please contact Professor Dennis O'Loughlin, the Department Chair or Professor Robert Cacciatore at

All students, staff and faculty are welcome to attend!

Event date, time and location.
