Created Equal: America's Civil Rights Struggle

Created Equal: America's Civil Rights Struggle

Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle brings four outstanding films on the long civil rights movement to communities across the United States. To mark the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, the National Endowment for the Humanities developed Created Equal as a special initiative of the Endowment's Bridging Cultures initiative. The Created Equal series encourages communities across the country to revisit the history of civil rights in America and to reflect on the ideals of freedom and equality that have helped bridge deep racial and cultural divides in our civic life. Four outstanding documentary films, spanning the period from the 1830s to the 1960s, are the centerpiece of this series. Each of these films was supported by NEH, and each tells remarkable stories of individuals who challenged the social and legal status quo of deeply rooted institutions, from slavery to segregation.
