Daisy Bates: First Lady of Little Rock

When: Thu., Jan. 5, 6 p.m. 2012

It's been roughly a half-century since the most dramatic events of the Civil Rights Movement challenged the makeup of America, but stories of heroism and defiance continue to emerge. One of them is Daisy Bates: First Lady of Little Rock, which screens for free in collaboration with Rocky Mountain PBS and the Independent Television Service at 6 tonight in Colorado College's Cornerstone Screening Room (825 N. Cascade Ave., Fueled by the hateful murder of her mother, Bates challenged institutions and mindsets in Arkansas and as the film's promotions say, she "paid dearly for it." The screening will be followed by a sneak-peek premiere of the first episode of Season Two of the PBS series Downton Abbey at 8. — Matthew Schniper
