April 19, 2013
Time:2-4 p.m.
Description:Based on her work in progress "The Discovery of Hunger in America: The Politics of Race, Poverty, and Malnutrition After the Fall of Jim Crow," Professor Laurie Green presents and discusses the prize-winning CBS television documentary "Hunger in America," directed by Martin Carr and Peter Davis, which is screened at this event.

First aired in the globally tumultuous month of May 1968, the broadcast drew more attention and provoked more controversy than had any television documentary to date. Reactions included college students deciding to volunteer in the antipoverty movement, viewers sending money and food to mothers and children interviewed in the program, and congressmen denouncing the film and initiating investigations by FBI officials and the Federal Communications Commission into its veracity.
