Peabody Decades Screening: “Based on a True Story”

November 4, 2013 – 8:00 AM

1960s tableau1960s Potpourri:
“Based on a True Story.”

November 5, 2013
Russell Special Collections Library Auditorium (300 S. Hull Street).

The more recent generations have been introduced to the 1960s through film and television drama.  Popular television dramas like “Mad Men” or “The Wonder Years” or movies like “Across the Universe” or “The Help” have helped these generations form ideas about this tumultuous period of time. But how accurate are those portrayals?

Interested in learning about the 1960s beyond dramatic representation? This screening of “Based on a True Story” shows us what was really going on in the 1960s. The screening will be at the Russell Special Collections Library Auditorium (300 S. Hull Street) on  November 5, 2013.  Refreshments served at 6:30. Screening begins at 7:00, followed by dialogue between student curator Mikala Bush and guests Mark Smith and Gloria Ricks Taylor (both Grady ABJ ’66).
