The "Created Equal" Film Series is part of the National Endowment for the Humanities Bridging Cultures Initiative.  The Initiative is designed to encourage communites to consider the long struggle for 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 society.  These films tell a remarkable story-about the importance of race in the marketing of American democracy about the power of individuals to effect change.  They are being shown at Siena College, in conjunction with the Martin Luther King, Jr., and Coretta Scott King Lecture Series on Race and Nonviolent Social Change.
