Join the Human Rights Research Network for its annual International Human Rights Film Series. This year’s theme is “History and Human Rights.” The films include “Belle” (Sept. 7), “Paradise Now” (Oct. 12) and “The Devil Came on Horseback” (Nov. 16).
All films begin at 6:30 p.m. in the School of Education Building, Room 120. A post-film discussion facilitated by members of UNCG faculty will follow all screenings.
“Belle,” the first film in the series, tells the story of Elizabeth Belle, the mixed-race daughter of a British Royal Navy Captain, whose life became intertwined with efforts to end slavery in England. Mark Elliott, associate professor of History will lead a discussion after the film.
The series is free and open to the public. For more information on the film series or upcoming film showings, visit humanrightsresearchnetwork.weebly.com.
