Elizabethtown College continues Diversity Film Series with 'The Defiant Ones' Feb. 6

Diversity Film SeriesThe Diversity Film Festival, hosted by the Academic Advising Office, continues with classic films that were among the first to deal with issues of race, gender, immigration and socio-economic stratification.

Free, open to the public and closed captioned, the films will be shown in Gibble Auditorium. Faculty members will lead discussion groups to explore the key messages of each film.

"The Defiant Ones" (1958) follows escaped prisoners – an African-American and a white racist from the deep South – as they escape from prison shackled to one another. The film will be shown at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 6, and includes discussion by Dr. Michael Swanson, associate professor of Theater and coordinator of Theater and Dance at Elizabethtown College.
