Special Film Screening and Q&A with Joan Mulholland: An Ordinary Hero
Monday, March 7 | 7:00pm | Storytelling Wing

Join us for a special film screening examining the life of civil rights activist Joan Trumpauer Mulholland, a Freedom Rider who participated in over three dozen sit-ins and protests by the time she was nineteen years old. For her actions she was disowned by her family, attacked, put on death row, and hunted by the Ku Klux Klan. Mulholland’s path crossed with some of the biggest names in civil rights history, including Martin Luther King, Jr., Medgar Evers, Robert F. Kennedy, John Lewis, Diane Nash, Jesse Owens, Jackie Robinson, and Harry Belafonte. She is the National Civil Rights Museum 2015 Freedom Award Recipient and has received numerous awards and recognition for her work in the civil rights movement. A Q&A will follow the screening.
