Movie Night and Discussion: Glory

Online WI

Grab some popcorn and a seat in your favorite chair, and join us for a Movie Night and Virtual Discussion with the Wisconsin Veterans Museum Staff. While we can’t all be together, we can share discussion on major motion pictures that deal with the hardships, humor and horrors of combat. For our third virtual discussion, we will look at the 1989 film Glory, starring Denzel Washington and Matthew Broderick. This is the inspiring story of the Massachusetts 54th, the first Black regiment to fight for the North in the Civil War. (mature subject matter) Your mission is to watch the movie, which is available from most libraries or on streaming services, while thinking about the discussion questions we will provide you. On August 28th, at 7:00 pm we’ll all meet via Zoom for a discussion led by museum staff. We will cover themes such as conflict, politics, pop culture, the military, and movie-making. After you register, we will email you the discussion questions and a link to join the virtual discussion via Zoom. This event is free and open to the public. REGISTER
