About: Durham County Library will screen excerpts from the acclaimed PBS film, Makers: Women Who Made America, at 7 p.m. on Monday, March 3, at the Main Library, 300 N. Roxboro St.

Makers tells the story of one of the most sweeping social revolutions in American History, as women asserted their rights to a full and fair share of political power, economic opportunity and personal autonomy. Built on an extensive archive of interviews, the film features the stories of those who led the fight, those who opposed it and those – both famous and unknown – caught up in its wake. Dr. Sharon Holland, Professor of American Studies at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, will introduce the film and lead a conversation after the screening. This program is co-sponsored by UNC-TV.
