Film Showing: Freedom Riders 

From May until December 1961, more than 400 black and white Americans risked their lives– many endured savage beatings and imprisonment–for traveling together on buses as they journeyed through the Deep South. Determined to test and challenge segregated travel facilities, the Freedom Riders were greeted with mob violence and bitter racism. From award-winning filmmaker Stanley Nelson, “Freedom Riders” features testimony from a fascinating cast: the Riders themselves, government officials, and journalists who witnessed the rides firsthand. Based on Raymond Arsenault's acclaimed book Freedom Riders: 1961 and the Struggle for Racial Justice.

Length: 120 minutes

Hoopla Movie Event: Health Literacy Month Thursday, October 2, 2014 - 4:00pm

Film Showing: Forks Over Knives

“Forks Over Knives” traces the journeys of a nutritional biochemist and a former top surgeon who conducted several groundbreaking studies. Research led them to the same conclusion: degenerative diseases like heart disease, type-2 diabetes, and several forms of cancer could be prevented or reversed by adopting a whole-foods, plant-based diet. The idea of food as medicine is put to the test. Cameras follow "reality patients" who have chronic conditions, such as heart disease and diabetes. Doctors teach these patients how to adopt a healthy diet, while the challenges and triumphs of their journeys are revealed.

Hoopla Movie Event: Aviation History Month Thursday, November 6, 2014 - 4:30pm

Film Showing: The Tuskegee Airmen (PBS) 

This inspiring World War II story spotlights 450 men who fought on two fronts at once. Black American aviators, known as the Tuskegee Airmen, battled Axis powers in Europe and North Africa and then took on racism at home. Trained by the segregated military system as an experiment to see if blacks could fly in combat, these pilots completed more than 15,000 sorties and 1,500 missions. Their success led to the integration of the U.S. armed forces.

Length: 60 Minutes; Produced by PBS
