The University Libraries invites the university and local communities to learn more about the Highlander Research and Education Center as it celebrates its 75th anniversary. All programs in the Documentaries in Library series will be on Tuesday evenings at the Hodges Library’s Lindsay Young Auditorium from 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM and are free and open to the public. The programs feature a documentary film showing and discussion lead by filmmakers, Highlander activists, and UT faculty.
Upcoming film on Tuesday, Nov. 27: The Telling Takes Me Home. Discussion Leaders: Guy and Candie Carawan with their son, Evan Carawan
The Telling Takes Me Home tells the story of activists and folk singers Guy and Candie Carawan, as seen through the eyes of their daughter, Heather Carawan. The documentary offers the filmmaker’s own reflections on growing up in the rich musical and political landscape her parents provided and includes footage from the Highlander Research and Education Center.
