ONLINE: Virtual Movie Screening of “Willie”
February 19 @ 2:00 pm - February 27 @ 2:00 pm
Willie O’Ree changed hockey forever on Jan. 18, 1958. In the midst of America’s tumultuous fight to end Jim Crow and the birth of the civil rights movement, Willie—the descendant of escaped slaves—became the first Black player to skate in a National Hockey League game.
In celebration of Black History Month, U.S. Embassy Oslo and the Embassy of Canada are offering an exclusive screening of the acclaimed documentary, “Willie.”
A watch window for the film will be available from Friday, February 19 to Saturday, February 27. Participants can view the film as often as they would like during the watch window.
