Created Equal in Alaska
The Alaska Council for the Social Studies, in partnership with the Alaska Humanities Forum and the Anchorage School present the Created Equal in Alaska project...
As part of the National Endowment for the Humanities' Bridging Cultures initiative and in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute, “Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle” encourages communities across the country to revisit the history of civil rights in the U.S. and to reflect on the ideals of freedom and equality that have helped bridge deep racial and cultural divides in American life. Scheduled to launch in 2013 to coincide with the 150thanniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, this program offers a packaged set of NEH-funded films on Civil Rights history to up to 500 communities across the nation over three years (from 2013 to 2016). Four powerful documentary films (The Abolitionists, Slavery by Another Name, Freedom Riders and The Loving Story) will be accompanied by in-depth programming resources to help guide productive community discussions.
