Events for Youth and Families: Family Movie at the Library: Emmanuel's Gift

Saturday, February 18, 2017 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Central Library, Dweck Center

Narrated by Oprah Winfrey, Emmanuel’s Gift tells the powerful and passionate story of a disabled orphan, Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah from Ghana, who has risen above poverty and a severe physical challenge to become a hero and inspiration to people around the world. His first stunning act of heroism was riding a bike across Ghana on one leg in order to change his country’s negative perception of the disabled.

Beautifully photographed and critically acclaimed, Emmanuel’s Gift is a compelling and inspirational story of courage and determination about a man who had nothing, but gave everything and changed a nation and its people forever.

(Directors Lisa Lax and Nancy Stern, 2005, 80 minutes) Rated: G
