Thu, Oct 19, 2017 | 7:00 pm

We invite you to join us as Temple University Libraries’ Special Collections Research Center (SCRC) celebrates the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Urban Archives with Unedited Philadelphia: Urban Archives at 50. The latest in the Unedited Philadelphia screening series highlights recently preserved and long-time favorites from the CBS3/KYW and WPVI6/WFIL news footage collections.

Urban Archives at 50 draws on raw news footage, nightly broadcasts, outtakes, and Public Affairs, and feature based programming to depict vignettes of life in the Philadelphia region from the 1940s through 1990s. The film features everyday and landmark moments in neighborhood life, art, music, politics, religion, and more.

This program is part of the Libraries' Beyond the Page public programming series. For full details on the 50th celebration, visit https://library.temple.edu/scrc/50-years.
