Hooks Institute Documentaries

Film ReelOne of the best ways of carrying out the Hooks Institute‚Äôs mission of teaching, studying, and promoting civil rights and social change is to hear the diverse voices of those who demonstrated courage and perseverance in demanding a more just nation. The Hooks Institute played a pivotal role in creating, funding, and supporting the documentaries featured here.

You hear the voices of seasoned activists, and the voices of those who were children, but were called upon to dismantle adult practices that created segregation in education.  These voices are a reminder of a past not to be repeated, and of a more just future to be created.
