St. Michaels Library to Screen Emmy Award-winning Civil Rights Documentary

On Thursday, June 28, at 2:00 p.m., the St. Michaels branch of the Talbot County Free Library will offer a free showing of “Miles of Smiles: The Years of Struggle” on the library’s big professional screen. “Miles of Smiles,” filmed by Academy Award-winning director Paul Wagner, tells the story of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, which, under the leadership of A. Philip Randolph, became the first black union to win major concessions in wage and working conditions from a large American corporation.

The Brotherhood also played a central role in the nation’s civil rights movement. It was sleeping car porter E. D. Nixon who—under the guidance of Randolph—organized the Montgomery Bus Boycott that first brought Martin Luther King, Jr., into the Civil Rights Movement. “Library guy” Bill Peak, whose wife performed much of the archival research for the film, will be on hand to talk about its production and answer questions. “Mile of Smiles” is being shown as part of the yearlong celebration of Frederick Douglass’s bicentennial.

All library programs are free and open to the public. Patrons do not need to pre-register to attend this film. For more information, please call the library at 410-822-1626, or visit www.tcfl.org.
