Films that Inspire

Brother Outsider: the Life of Bayard RustinThe “Spotlight Series: Films That Inspire” display, located by the Information Desk on the first floor of the Main Library, featured resources included in the Notable Videos for Adults list established by the Video Round Table (VRT). The VRT provides leadership within the American Library Association (ALA) on all issues related to video collections, programs, and services in libraries. We encourage the UI community to explore the topics presented in these poignant and moving films, available in Media Services at the UI Main Library.

FarmingvilleThe UI Cultural Houses and Resource Center managed by the Office of Student Life are fundamental in bringing to light issues that are important to African Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, Latinos and Native Americans and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender community. The “Spotlight Series” displays are meant to connect the library to the UI cultural houses and resource center.
