ETV and the Nickelodeon Theatre, the state’s only non-profit art house theater, are partnering on two key projects as part of the city’s Columbia SC 63 year long commemoration of the Civil Rights Movement. Programs from ETV’s Carolina Stories and Southern Lens series will be featured as part of the Nick’s monthly community film series on the subject beginning with The Education of Harvey Gantt. Other programs that will be screened and discussed include Jail, No Bail and Before Rosa.
As part of the ETV American Graduate initiative to combat the dropout problem, ETV and the Nick, along with other partners, Write/Right to Change and Benedict College, will hold an ETV Civil Rights and Social Justice Youth Media Summit. Focusing on digital and social media as a strategy for student engagement, the Summit will teach critical thinking and problem-solving skills to a group of high school students while helping them to understand their place in history. The students will conduct interviews with South Carolina veterans of the Civil Rights Movement and showcase them at student film festivals and on the Knowitall.org website, Road Trip! Through S.C. Civil Rights History.
