In honor of Women's History Month, join us for a movie screening of "The Rape of Recy Taylor."

A documentary by Nancy Buirski- Followed by a (discussion, panel discussion, Q&A, etc.)

Our film exposes a legacy of physical abuse of black women and reveals Rosa Parks’ intimate role in Recy Taylor’s story. An attempted rape against Recy Taylor, a 24-year-old black mother and sharecropper, was gang raped by six white boys in 1944 Alabama. Common in Jim Crow South, few women spoke up in fear for their lives. Not Recy Taylor, who bravely identified her rapists. The NAACP sent its chief rape investigator Rosa Parks, who rallied support and triggered an unprecedented outcry for justice.

Parks was but one inspiration for her ongoing work to find justice for countless women like Taylor.
