MotionMasters CEO to introduce film and conduct Q&A after
As part of Black History Month, the MotionMasters documentary, “A Principled Man: Rev. Leon Sullivan,” (which aired nationally on PBS in January, 2001) will be shown at the Culture Center Theatre at the West Virginia State Capitol on Friday, Feb. 10, 2012, at 7 p.m. The film and the post-show dessert reception are both free and open to the public.
“This film will explain why “Leon Sullivan Way” is not merely a major traffic artery in Charleston, West Virginia,” said Sole Walko. It will introduce a new generation to a charismatic and influential pioneer in the fight against injustice and economic oppression,” she said. “I highly recommend it for both children and adults.”
The event is hosted by the West Virginia Division of Culture and History.
