Since September, the Oneonta chapter of the NAACP has been sponsoring a free film series at SUNY Oneonta called "Discrimination Matters".  The focus is on groups that have suffered from discriminatory practices in American society. The series is patterned on the previous year’s successful series entitled “Race Matters” which was co-sponsored with the Oneonta City Human Rights Commission. As with that series, community leaders and educators will introduce and lead discussions after the films.

Come out to watch the next free film in the Waterfront room in SUNY Oneonta's Hunt Union on January 4 at 7:00 p.m. The movie to be shown is "Loving" (2016) which tells the story of Richard and Mildred Loving, a couple whose arrest for interracial marriage in 1960s Virginia began a legal battle that would end with the Supreme Court's historic 1967 decision.

The "Discrimination Matters" film series will continue on the first friday of each month through May 2019.
