Memoir writing

Starting February 7th, BSBPL will host a Life Writing Group on Thursdays from 1:30 to 3:30.  This initial meeting will last about 8 weeks, with a chance it may continue if there is interest.  This informed group will meet to share stories and practice writing.  You don’t have to be a great or even good writer to work on your memories and family history–you just have to be interested in chronicling these valuable stories for all time. This event is free and open to the public.  No registration required.  You are not required to attend every meeting.  Just bring pen and paper.  For more information, call Carol Eaglefeathers at 406-498-1475.

First Fridays: Teach Us All Documentary

Our First Fridays series continues on February 1st with a screening of the documentary, Teach Us All.  Shown in honor of Black History Month, this film examines our history of segregation and examines how far we have come in our fight for diversity and equality in our public school systems. Synopsis: Produced by the Lowell Milken Center for Unsung Heroes, TEACH US ALL is a documentary and social justice campaign on educational inequality set against the backdrop of the 1957 Little Rock school crisis. Sixty years after the Little Rock Nine faced violent resistance when desegregating Central High in Arkansas, America’s schools continue to represent the key battleground of the Civil Rights Movement. TEACH US ALL demonstrates powerful lessons from history within a timely context, emphasizing the need for unity and collective action to rectify the disparities among America’s children. The TEACH US ALL social justice campaign seeks to build the capacity of students and educators to take leadership in carrying forth the legacy of the Little Rock Nine while activating broader community engagement in today’s urgent movement for educational equity.
