A Vision of Action film series was hosted Wednesday night by Impact San Marcos. Two films showed what the Civil Rights movement was for locals and how it contributed to the larger fight in America. The first presentation was titled “The Crossroads-San Marcos Stories,” which was a film produced by Doctor David Nolan’s summer Visual Storytelling class. He says one reason he chose to do this was to let people know about the rich history of the city.

“We want to capture these wonderful stories for these people and they have so much to offer us and to share,” David Nolan said. 

“I thought it was just a great opportunity for the students to participate in that and give them the experiences they need to do that.”

The second film was titled “The Rosa Parks Story,” which depicted the whole story on how one person changed a lot. President of Impact San Marcos, Arthur Taylor, said that we are still in an era of civil rights movements, and that in order to become a better union, we have to accept each other.

“I think that it is going to come down to tolerance, I think that it is going to come down to motivating people to want to learn and to want to know,” Arthur Taylor said. 

“In order to accept change, we have to teach and it comes down to teaching tolerance.”
– Arthur Taylor

A third film titled “Eyes on the Prize,” also depicting on the civil rights movement, is expected to be showcased on  February 5th.
