  2. Stonewall Riots Documentary & Discussion
    • Start time: 06:30pm
    • End date: Tuesday, June 25th
    • End time: 08:30pm
    • The Library's Retro Summer Series commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, Apollo 11 moon landing, and Woodstock festival. On June 28, 1969, a gay club located in Greenwich Village in New York City - the Stonewall Inn - was raided by New York City police. The event sparked a riot that would lead to six days of protests and violent clashes in neighboring streets of the Stonewall Inn and in nearby Christopher Park. The Stonewall Riots served as a catalyst for the gay rights movement in the United States and around the world. Join us in viewing the American Experience documentary, Stonewall Uprising, based on the book, Stonewall: The Riots that Sparked the Gay Revolution by David Carter. The screening will be followed by a discussion facilitated by Rachel Reinke, Ph.D., Associate Director of the Sexuality, Women, and Gender Center at Bowdoin College. This event is free to attend and open to the public. Seating is limited.
