Movie Talks: The Great Debaters

Monday, December 10, 2018

Watch the movie 'The Great Debaters,' then join a conversation about diversity, unity and inclusion. "The Great Debaters" is the true story of Melvin B. Tolson, a professor who formed a debate team at a small, African-American college in the 1930s. That team went on to beat Harvard in the national debate championships. The Citizens' Unity Commission and the Hampton Public Library are partnering to create opportunities for citizens to engage in conversations about diversity, unity, and inclusion using movie viewings. These events create opportunity to build new relationships, increase understanding of others, and promote mutual respect. Seating is limited. RSVP by calling 757-727-8311. Free popcorn and soft drinks provided.
