Long, Long Way: Faith and/in the Movies

Saturday, February 29, 2020 | 1:00pm

This panel discussion is part of our Long, Long Way Film Series. Learn more about A Long, Long Way Film Series here.

Roger Ebert described Glory (1989) as a powerful film on how during the Civil War the black soldiers of the Massachusetts 54th Regiment helped to reshape attitudes about African-American courage, intelligence and humanity. On the 30th anniversary of the film’s three 1990 Oscar wins (Best Supporting Actor, Denzel Washington; Best Cinematography; Best Sound) we’ll celebrate the gifts of this film and explore questions about it. After our screening, NPR’s Korva Coleman will moderate a panel discussion on Glory‘s historical context and consider its lasting impact.

Panelists: Dr. David Terry, Rev. Janet Broderick and Rev. Canon Kelly Brown Douglas
