  • Just Mercy – Free for the month of June. Just Mercy is a film based on the life work of civil rights attorney Bryan Stevenson. A resource for those interested in learning more about systemic racism.
  • Best of Enemies – A film based on a true story, The Best of Enemies centers on the unlikely relationship between Ann Atwater, an outspoken civil rights activist, and C.P. Ellis, a local Ku Klux Klan leader who reluctantly co-chaired a community summit, battling over the desegregation of schools in Durham, North Carolina during the racially-charged summer of 1971.
  • Lost Buxton – A video presentation about Iowa’s best kept secret. In 1900, at a time when Jim Crow laws, segregation, and the Ku Klux Klan kept blacks and whites separated, residents in Buxton, Iowa — a thriving coal mining town of 5,000 residents established by Consolidation Coal Company — lived, worked, and went to school side by side. African Americans — miners, teachers, business owners, doctors, lawyers, and more — made up more than half of the population for the first 10 years and remained the largest ethnic group until 1914. Unfortunately, by 1922, Buxton was a ghost town.
