Glory

A film screening in honor of Black History Month

Glory is the dramatic account of the Civil War’s first all-black regiment, led by an idealistic, privileged, northern white commander Colonel Robert Gould Shaw (Matthew Broderick), fighting not only the enemy, but also convention and prejudice. This stunning drama is based on Shaw’s Civil War letters. Denzel Washington won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Glory.
