In honor of February as Black History Month, Rogers State University is hosting a film series.

The film series is a collaborative effort between Dr. Hugh Foley, RSU Film Society, and RSU Library.

"The RSU Black History Month film series is designed to illuminate African-American filmmakers and subject matter during Black History Month at RSU. This series is one way in which RSU fulfills part of its mission by providing students opportunities to learn more about the multi-cultural society in which they will work and live," said Dr. Hugh Foley, Professor of Cinema & Native American Studies. "We also started the series to make sure Black History Month is acknowledged on campus, and provide a foundation for other ideas about how the university can celebrate African-American history and life.

Students and community are invited to catch a showing of “Harriet” on Feb. 25 at 6 p.m. in the Baird Hall Performance Studio."

About the movie:

“Harriet”- “From her escape from slavery through the dangerous missions she led to liberate hundreds of slaves through the Underground Railroad, the story of heroic abolitionist Harriet Tubman is told.” (IMDB)
