Film screening: ‘The Trail of Tears’

November 4, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

On Monday, Nov. 4 at 7 p.m. in the Coffeehouse, please join us for a screening of the film, “The Trail of Tears.” On May 26, 1838, federal troops forced thousands of Cherokee from their homes in the Southeastern United States, driving them toward Indian Territory in Eastern Oklahoma. More than 4,000 died of disease and starvation along the way. Though in the end the Cherokee embrace of “civilization” and their landmark legal victory proved no match for white land hunger and military power, the Cherokee people were able, with characteristic ingenuity, to build a new life in Oklahoma, far from the land that had sustained them for generations. Popcorn will be served!
