MSL celebrates Black History Month

MANCHESTER - Mark Skinner Library will commemorate Black History Month by presenting "Mighty Times: The Children's March," on Wednesday, Feb. 13. The Academy Award winner, for Best Documentary, Short Subjects will begin at 6:30 p.m.

On May 2, 1963, the children of Birmingham, Ala. took to the streets to challenge segregation. This testament to the fact that young people can make a difference is a production of "Teaching Tolerance," a project of the Southern Poverty Law Center. The film runs 40 minutes and will be followed by discussion. It is appropriate for Grades 6 through adult. The program is free and open to the public.

Mark Skinner Library is located at 48 West Road in Manchester. For more information, contact Janet Kleinberg or Cindy Waters at (802) 362-2607 or email
