Women's Rights National Historical Park continues its annual Winter Film Festival by showing the documentary film Voices of Civil Rights on Friday, November 1, and Saturday, November 2, 2013.
This year's winter film festival focuses on the history of the civil rights movement as we commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. This week's film uses first-hand accounts from the civil rights movement to highlight its most influential impact on the average citizen. The running time for Voices of Civil Rights is 50 minutes.
Women's Rights National Historical Park commemorates and preserves the sites associated with the First Women's Rights Convention, held in 1848 in Seneca Falls. "We are proud to be part of the National Park system, and we invite everyone to join us in celebrating our shared history and culture through film," said Superintendent Ami Ghazala. "The Winter Film Festival is a fun way to learn about our national history," added Ghazala.
All Winter Film Festival showings will occur at 12:00 Noon on Fridays and Saturdays at the Women's Rights National Historical Park Visitor Center, located at 136 Fall Street in Seneca Falls. All film showings are free of charge. The Winter Film Festival films are intended for a general audience. Visitors are encouraged to call if they are interested in a particular showing as film lengths vary.
