When police raided the Stonewall Inn, a popular gay bar in the Greenwich Village section of New York City on June 28, 1969, the street erupted into violent protests that lasted for the next six days. The Stonewall riots, as they came to be known, marked a major turning point in the modern gay civil rights movement in the United States and around the world.
Join CALS as it commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots with this screening of the PBS American Masters documentary “Stonewall Uprising”.
This event is FREE and open to the public. Doors open at 7:00pm with general admission seating on a first come, first served basis.
Presented by CALS and AETN/PBS.
