Jackson College will celebrate Pride Month with a film discussion of the documentary “Stonewall Uprising” at 4 p.m. June 30.
About the film: In the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, police raided the Stonewall Inn, a popular gay bar in the Greenwich Village section of New York City. Such raids were not unusual in the late 1960s, an era when homosexual sex was illegal in every state but Illinois. That night, however, the street erupted into violent protests and demonstrations that lasted for the next six days. The Stonewall riots, as they came to be known, marked a major turning point in the modern Queer civil rights movement in the United States and around the world.
Please watch this documentary prior to the June 30 film discussion. You may watch this documentary for free on Kanopy, a free streaming service available from the library. You will need to log in with your Jackson College or Jackson District Library credentials to access the film.
