LSU Film Series: Glory

Posted in Announcements

gloryThe LSU Libraries Film Series is set to have its second film showing on Wednesday, February 20th, at 2:00 PM, in the Hill Memorial Library Lecture Hall. The second film, Glory, is about the Civil War’s first all-black regiment and is being shown in recognition of Black History Month. The film stars Matthew Broderick, Morgan Freeman, and Denzel Washington, who won a Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for his performance. The New York Times proclaimed Glory to be “beautifully acted,” “pageant-like,” and having “an almost overwhelming emotional impact.” Glory will have a brief introduction from Professor Adam Pratt of the LSU History Department. Admission is free of charge, and there will also be refreshments.

For questions or further information, contact Kelly Blessinger at 225-578-8538 or kblessi@lsu.edu.

Sigrid Kelsey is the Director of Library Communications and Publications at the LSU Libraries.
