In recognition of Black History Month, we selected The Butler as February's Movies&Books pick. The film was released last summer and since then we have been excited to watch it and discuss it at our upcoming meeting. It's a really great lens through which to see the civil rights movement of the 1960's, and most of the 20th century's momentous events.
