Reflections Unheard: Black Women in Civil Rights, Film Screening, Peace Week
September 18 @ 11:30 am - 2:00 pm
Join us for the Film Screening and Director Q & A for the film, Reflections Unheard: Black Women in Civil Rights. Through the personal stories of several former black female Civil Rights activists, Reflections Unheard: Black Women in Civil Rights unearths the lesser-known story of black women’s political marginalization between the male-dominated Black Power movement, and the predominantly white and middle class Feminist movement during the 1960s and 70s, as well as the resulting mobilization of black and other women of color into a united Feminist movement.
Reflections Unheard is a feature length documentary, and the first of its kind to focus exclusively on black women’s contributions and experiences during the Civil Rights era.
