The federal holiday of Juneteenth celebrates the ending of slavery in this country. As part of the celebration, the Hillsborough Classic Film Society will join with the Orange County Public Library in Hillsborough to present the noir mystery thriller Devil in a Blue Dress, based upon the first book in Walter Mosely’s acclaimed Easy Rawlins series. Please join us for a free showing of this award-winning classic starring Denzel Washington on Sunday, June 16, at 2 pm, in the Public Library on Margaret Lane. Popcorn and refreshments are included. A short discussion will follow the film.
