Film festival through April 2014 at Seneca Falls, NY women’s rights national park

The Women’s Right’s National Historical Park has a film festival ongoing through April of 2014. Entitled “Keep the Dream Alive,” the park’s events planners have used the theme of civil rights that are in alignment with the suffrage theme of the social revolution of 72 years in women’s rights. It’s another way of rocking the cradle. Whereas most national parks have landscape or open space to distinguish them, the Seneca Falls national park is different. Thus, special programs under the civil rights umbrella like the ongoing film festival. The year 2013 commemorated the 50th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
