The Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library presents a new Zoom program on the Super Bowl. The program is set for 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 21.

Attendees will learn about the origins of the Big Game by hearing about how America’s top sports event was created in the aftermath of the AFL All Star Game boycott of Jim Crow in New Orleans in 1965.
