MHS Film Club: Glory
Kanisorn Wongsrichanalai and Kevin Levin
Announcing the MHS Film Club!
The MHS will feature a movie every month and then invite experts on the topic to lead a discussion on the film.
Topics could include historical accuracy, connections to the MHS or Massachusetts, or the impact of the film on popular understanding of history. Participants are encouraged to watch the movie at their leisure and then join us for the discussion. The films selected will be widely available through streaming services. This will be a participatory program and audience members are encouraged to share their thoughts and bring questions.
Join Civil War experts Kanisorn Wongsrichanalai and Kevin Levin as they discuss 1989’s Glory. Starring Denzel Washington, Morgan Freeman, and Matthew Broderick, this film follows the story of the 54th Regiment and
Col. Robert Gould Shaw. Watch the film at home and then join us online for an interactive conversation. Glory is currently available through Hulu, Amazon Video, Google Video, Starz, HBO Max, and other streaming sites.
