    The Barber of Birmingham Documentary Screening

    The Birmingham Public Library system is getting a head start on celebrating the 50th anniversary of the civil rights movement in Birmingham by showing the Academy Award-nominated film The Barber of Birmingham: Foot Soldier of the Civil Rights Movement, September 12-October 22, 2012. The film is about Birmingham barber and civil rights activist James Armstrong and what he did to fight for equality in Alabama. There will be 14 free screenings at 13 library branches. Discussions will follow each screening. This event is a collaboration with POV (Point of View), the award-winning independent nonfiction film series on PBS. The film was produced by Gail Dolgin, who died in October 2010, and Robin Fryday. Both women are from California.
