Social Justice Film Series
In honor of Women’s History Month we’ll watch this award-winning documentary – the compelling story of the Mississippi Civil Rights movement from the point of view of its remarkable and courageous women who changed the course of history. Many of us have never heard of Fannie Lou Hamer, Annie Devine, Unita Blackwell, Mae Bertha Carter, or Victoria Gray Adams. But without the efforts of these women, the Civil Rights movement in Mississippi would not have been possible. This is their story of commitment, bravery and leadership in the face of a hostile and violent segregated society.
Filmmakers: Laura J. Lipson, Joan H. Sadoff, and Dr. Robert L. Sadoff (2002)
