HOUGHTON -- The Spring 2012 Women's Film Series will host a screening of The Secret Life of Bees at 7 p.m., Monday, Feb. 27, in Fisher 129 on the Michigan Tech campus.
The film, set in 1964 during the civil rights movement, follows a young girl as she flees from home with her caretaker to a South Carolina town, where they are taken in by three bee-keeping sisters. The film stars Queen Latifah, Alicia Keys, Dakota Fanning and Jennifer Hudson.
The screening is part of a monthly film series sponsored by Michigan Tech's Center for Diversity and Inclusion, the Women's Programming Committee and the Women's Leadership Council. Three more films are scheduled this semester.
