In celebration of Black History Month and in support of this year’s theme of “Black Resistance,” we are honored to share our award-winning short documentary “When I Get Grown: Reflections of a Freedom Rider” for free throughout the month of February.
“When I Get Grown,” a film based on Dr. Clayborne Carson’s interviews with American civil rights activist Bernard Lafayette, explores Lafayette’s experiences as a Freedom Rider and his role in the Civil Rights Movement. The film highlights the Freedom Riders’ commitment to end segregation and underscores the importance of black resistance in the struggle for equal rights and justice.
Bernard Lafayette’s story is deeply intertwined with the theme of “Black Resistance” and his unwavering spirit of defiance against discrimination serves as a beacon of hope and inspiration for generations to come.
