The Black 14" Film and Lecture to Be Presented as Part of FSU African American Studies Series

The Frostburg State University African American Studies Lecture Series will present the film and lecture, "The Black 14," on the role played by African American football players during the struggle for civil rights during the 1960s. The presentation, which is free and open to the public, will be Thursday, Sept. 6, at 7 p.m. in the Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall in the Lane Center.

The speaker, Dr. Niyi Coker Jr., professor of theatre and director of African American Studies at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, is the producer of "The Black 14." The film is not just a football story; it is the story of courage and commitment of Black athletes in the struggle for human dignity and racial equality in America. The film and lecture will be followed by a discussion.
