They were called radicals, agitators, troublemakers and liberators; abolitionists is what they were. The Abolitionists, a film that tells the stories of Frederick Douglass, William Lloyd Garrison, Angelina Grimke, Harriet Beecher Stowe and John Brown, will be screened at Nova Southeastern University on Saturday, Feb. 27 at 2 p.m. The event is a part of the Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle, an “initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History that uses the power of documentary films to encourage community discussion about America’s civil rights history.”

A discussion moderated by a professor from NSU’s College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences will follow the screening. The free screening and discussion will be held in the Cotilla Gallery at the Alvin Sherman Library, 3100 Ray Ferrero, Jr. Blvd., Davie..
