A screening of an award-winning documentary produced by SMU graduate Q. Ragsdale will be held Tuesday, Nov. 28, at 7:30 p.m. in the Hughes-Trigg Student Center Theater.
“No Ways Tired: Kathlyn Gilliam and the De-Segregation of Dallas Public Schools” won first place at the 2006 Juneteenth Film Festival for Best Documentary. The documentary chronicles the community-based activism of Gilliam and the successful grassroots organization strategies that ultimately accomplished the desegregation of Dallas Public Schools.
A question-and-answer session with Gilliam and two SMU history faculty members, Glenn Linden and LaTrese Evette Adkins, will follow the screening. Linden is also the author of Desegregating Schools in Dallas: Four Decades in the Federal Courts.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 214-768-3683.
