Film Screening & Discussion
the movie "42" 
Join us on Thursday, February 11, 2016 at 6:30 pm in the Woodbury Room for the next event in a film & discussion series which began in the fall of 2014 and continues to look at issues of race.  A facilitated discussion will be held after the screening.

This month’s film tells the story of Jackie Robinson in this feature film from 2013. Robinson paved a new road for minorities by being the first African-American to play in Major League Baseball since the racial barrier was put in place in the late 1800s.  This film is rated PG-13.

Free and open to the public.  For more information, please contact Janet Ryan at 413/259-3223
