The non-profit SC Humanities has partnered with Columbia's Nickelodeon Theater on Main St. to give the public a glimpse into Columbia's civil right's past throughout the month of February.
The "Black Stories" series features a free movie every Monday night during Black History Month to teach people about the civil rights history on both a national and local scale.
A small Q&A panel follows every film that allows people from the civil rights movement to tell first-hand their experiences during that time and gives the audience an opportunity to ask questions.
University of South Carolina Associate Professor of History Bobby Donaldson moderated Monday's showing of "Freedom Riders."
"It's an opportunity to educate people about the untold story of civil rights history in Columbia," said Donaldson. "It's a reminder of the constant struggle and that these events that were 60 years ago have direct bearing on who we are today."
