The UNF Film Program, LGBTQ Center and Digital Humanities Institute present "The Committee," a documentary screening and Q&A with the filmmakers Drs. Robert Cassanello and Lisa Mills of the University of Central Florida. The Committee is a documentary film about the little-known Florida Legislative Investigative Committee of the State Legislature from 1956-1965. Florida Senator Charley Johns chaired the committee, and its aim was to root out communist and homosexual teachers and students from state universities. It was successful in either firing or expelling more than 200 suspected gay and lesbian citizens. Register to attend.
