Thursday, September 25, 6 p.m.
A documentary "Home of the Brave" on the civil rights activist, Viola Liuzzo, who was murdered in 1965 as she campaigned for black suffrage in Selma, Alabama. The ceremony will open with keynote speaker Victor Snyder, former seven term U.S. Congressman (D-AR).
Liuzzo was the only white women killed during the civil rights movement in America. Told through the eyes of her children, the film follows the on-going struggle of an American family trying to survive the consequences of their mother’s heroism and the mystery behind her murder.
The film will be followed by an audience talk back with Mary Liuzzo Lilleboe and Sally Liuzzo-Prado, daughters of Viola Liuzzo, moderated by Victor Snyder.
