Join the Davenport Civil Rights Commission and the Davenport Public Library for a screening of the film “Riding the Rails to Hero Street” on Wednesday, September 21 at 6:30pm at the Davenport Public Library Branch on Fairmount Street. The film details the lives of Mexican American families that lived in Cook’s Point, Holy City, and on Hero Street.

Let’s gather to make sure history is not forgotten and to honor the lives and legacies of the people who lived in these settlements. Hispanic contributions to the Quad Cities will be highlighted with a discussion after the movie.
