      "Long Time Coming" Film Screening and Panel Discussion

      In 1955, when racial segregation defined the South, two groups of twelve-year-old boys stepped onto a baseball field in a nonviolent act of cultural defiance that would change the course of history and challenge their own perceptions sixty years later. "Long Time Coming" features Major League Baseball and Civil Rights icons Hank Aaron, Cal Ripken Jr., Gary Sheffield, Davey Johnson and Ambassador Andrew Young.  As one of the most diverse campuses in the Midwest region, Mount Mary strives for a teaching and learning enviornment that fosters unity and common ground.  "Long Time Coming" sheds light on the past, the present, and how the game of baseball brought people together to inspire personal and social change.  Ballpark refreshments will be served starting at 6:10 p.m. The film will be shown at 6:30 p.m.
