Performance Notes

Film Screening and Panel Discussion: Glory
Tickets: $15 ($10 military/veterans)

Roger Ebert described Glory (1989) as a powerful film revealing how the black soldiers of Massachusetts' 54th Regiment helped to reshape attitudes about African-American courage, intelligence, and humanity during the Civil War. On the 30th anniversary of the film’s three 1990 Oscar wins (Best Supporting Actor, Denzel Washington; Best Cinematography; Best Sound) we’ll celebrate the gifts of this film and explore questions about it. After our screening, NPR’s Korva Coleman will moderate a panel discussion on Glory‘s historical context and consider its lasting impact.

Panelists: Dr. David Terry, Rev. Janet Broderick, and Rev. Kelly Brown Douglas

Tickets purchased now will be held under your name for pick up at the Cathedral on February 28.
