Marshall University is participating in an initiative marking the history of civil rights in U.S.
Officials said the school has been selected to participate in "Created Equal: America's Civil Rights Struggle."
The initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities features a series of documentaries and support materials developed by the endowment with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.
The films include "The Abolitionists," "Slavery by Another Name," "Freedom Riders," and "The Loving Story."
Marshall is one of 473 institutions across the country that has been awarded a set of the films. A schedule of showings will be announced in the near future.
The endowment was created in 1965 to support learning in history, literature, philosophy, and other areas of the humanities.
