Pulitzer winner McWhorter has Q&A after Feb. 6 'Selma' screening

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Diane McWhorter will talk about the civil rights struggle — then and now — after the screening of the 2014 film "Selma" on Saturday, Feb. 6, at 7 p.m. at The Loft Cinema.

Students and the public are welcome to ask McWhorter questions after the movie, which is co-sponsored by the University of Arizona School of Journalism and is the fourth film in the "Journalism on Screen" series at The Loft, 3233 E. Speedway. Tickets are $7.50 for students and faculty, $9.25 for the public.

"Carry Me Home," McWhorter's account of the civil rights movement in her hometown of Birmingham, Alabama, won the Pulitzer Prize for general non-fiction in 2002.

Other sponsors for the "Journalism on Screen" series include the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, Arizona inn and The New York Times.

The previous films, shown during the fall 2015 semester, were "Absence of Malice," "The Paper" and "Broadcast News." Click here for an earlier story.
