Movie Event @ the Library!!
Posted by Ariel Custer on November 15, 2016
The Seldovia Public Library is showing the inspirational film Amazing Grace on Saturday, November 19 at 3pm.
In 1797, William Wilberforce, the great crusader for the British abolition of slavery, is taking a vacation for his health even while he is sicker at heart for his frustrated cause. With few allies such as his mentor, John Newton, a slave ship captain turned repentant priest who penned the great hymn, “Amazing Grace,” Prime William Pitt, and Olaudah Equiano, the erudite former slave turned author, Wilberforce fruitlessly fights both public indifference and moneyed opposition determined to keep their exploitation safe. Nevertheless, Wilberforce finds the inspiration to rejuvenate the fight with new ideas that could lead to a great victory for social justice.
