The History & Political Science Department is sponsoring a movie night, showing the Disney movie that Disney doesn’t want you to see on Friday, October 14, at 7:00 p.m. in Heath 100. Join us for a screening of the live action-cartoon film, The Song of the South, followed by a discussion of race and racism in this Disney classic.
Polling for Movie Night Preferences at the Welcome/Welcome Back HPS party produced the following results.
Gettysburg, Last of the Mohicans, and Duck Soup were bunched at the top.
