Babyboomers, Gen X, Millennials. Whichever label applies to your age group is assumed to express something about who you are and how you approach the world. In some ways, that may be true. We are all molded by our societal and historical context, and common generational trends help us see how we have been influenced by the past and what direction we might move in the future.
Movies help us experience and understand each other and the world around us. They educate and enlighten us. And, they can lead to meaningful and much-needed discourse. Lights, Camera, Civics! hopes to be a catalyst for such conversations.
Funded in part by New Hampshire Humanities, the Black Heritage Trail of NH will host two additional programs in the Elinor Williams Hooker Tea Talk series.
