WPA Film Returns to Tyler, Texas



Smith County Historical Society, in collaboration with The Live and Kicking Winners Circle of Tyler, Texas will screen “Enough to Live On:  The Arts of the WPA” on Sunday, March 6 at 2:00pm in the Taylor Auditorium of the Tyler Public Library.

This is the second time this film has been shown in Tyler.  

The Winners Circle is a non-profit organization that serves those who have been in prison or are recovering from addiction.  They are bringing this film back to Tyler for an encore screening as a way to highlight the rich history of African Americans in the arts of the WPA.

"The imperfection of the American Democracy is 
each day perfected through the strength of its 
citizens and through their belief in the binding force 
of their shared sense of community. 
Civic pride…civic values…the idea of citizenship 
continues to remain strong in Tyler, Texas. 
It’s an example for us all." 
~ Michael Maglaras, Filmmaker
