The Created Equal film series is made possible through a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, as part of its Bridging Cultures initiative, in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.

This event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited to 30, so registration is required. (See link above.) Visitors must stop at the parking booth off of Founders Lane and ask for a "Created Equal" event parking pass.
