Lincoln School Story Showing at CDFF’s New Location!

May 15 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

The Chagrin Documentary Film Festival‘s new home is now open! Stop in Wednesday – Saturday 11:00 am – 5:00 pm to check out the latest CDFF merch, history wall, donor appreciation wall, and upcoming monthly programming.

As part of May’s programming to celebrate Women’s Health Month, the CDFF is screening The Lincoln School Story!

The Lincoln School Story tells the inspiring story of a group of courageous African American mothers who fought for school integration in 1954 in the town of Hillsboro, Ohio. After the Brown v. Board of Education decision, these mothers marched with their children to the white elementary school, demanding admission—only to be turned away. Their lawsuit against the school board was one of the first test cases of the Brown decision. Despite segregationist redistricting, cross burnings, job losses, and legal threats, they marched for two years in one of the longest sustained civil rights marches in American history.

Purchase tickets here.
