Carolyn Crowder, Director

“At the River” is the story of ministers whose ministry took place in the segregated South of the 1950s and 1960s. Those highlighted in the film took risks and exhibited courage and faithfulness in the face of danger and the challenges of the time.

Film Director Carolyn Crowder will be on hand to talk about the film and to share their firsthand experiences. Dr. Crowder is a retired psychologist who specialized in parent education and who has produced three documentaries focused on Southern history.
