"An Ordinary Hero" Film and Discussion

An Ordinary Hero tells the story of civil rights activist Joan Trumpauer Mulholland. By the time she was 19, Mulholland had participated in dozens of sit-ins and protests, was shot at, attacked, and put on death row for being a Freedom Rider. Heralded as an unsung hero, she participated in some of the most iconic and pivotal moments of the American Civil Rights Movement. She was crusader who integrated Tugaloo College (an HBCU), was the first white student in Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., trained white activists and dedicated her career to youth education.

Join us for a film and discussion that will examine Mulholland’s journey and use it as a catalyst explore social justice activism, allyship and movement building.
