Walk with Me: The Trials of Damon J. Keith


Date & Time: 
Apr 13 2017 - 5:00pm - 6:30pm

Screening and discussion

Part of the Marlboro On the Road series, the Boston-area event presents this award-winning documentary, directed by Marlboro College graduate Jesse Nesser ‘13. Walk with Me tells the story of ten extraordinary years, four groundbreaking cases, and one unconventional federal judge whose rulings forever changed the face of civil rights in the United States. First appointed to the U.S. District Court in Detroit, in 1967, only three months after race riots tore apart the city, Judge Damon J. Keith shook the nation as he challenged the status quo and faced off against angry crowds, the KKK, corporate America, and even a sitting U.S. President. Now 94, Judge Keith still serves on the US Circuit Court of Appeals; a living embodiment of nearly a century of US history.

The evening begins at 5:00 pm with a reception for Marlboro alumni, prospective students, and their families, including a complimentary drink and hors d’oeuvers. The public event commences at 6:30 with remarks from Jesse as well as Marita Rivero, executive director of the Museum of African American History, and Kevin Quigley, Marlboro College president, followed by the film showing.

The “Marlboro On the Road” series invites communities beyond Vermont to engage, reconnect, and gain insights from Marlboro community members on topics relevant to our future.
