To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, BAMcinématek presents 40 films documenting the period of the civil rights movement leading up to the March and the waves of legislation that passed in the years following it. Culled from 28 private film and television archives, collectors, studios and public libraries, these films create a sweeping portrait of what's often called the heroic era of the civil rights movement in documentary, Hollywood and independent film.

Venue Description: A multi-arts center located in Brooklyn, offering theater, dance, music, opera, film, and more from emerging artists and innovative modern masters.
