WOMYNS HERITAGE MONTH 2013 FILM & DISCUSSION SERIESBEGINS TONIGHT @ 7PM!

“Standing on My Sisters’ Shoulders”

Standing on My Sisters' Shoulders

One of the best films on the Civil Rights Movement, this award-winning documentary reveals the movement in Mississippi in the 1950s and 60s from the point of view of the courageous women who lived it — and emerged as its grassroots leaders.
Standing on My Sisters’ Shoulders is full of riveting historical footage and original interviews with Fannie Lou Hamer, Annie Devine, Unita Blackwell, Mae Bertha Carter, Victoria Gray Adams and more. Voter registration, the fight for equal education, desegregation, and of course the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party’s challenge at the Democratic Convention are featured.
“If you can show just one film on the Civil Rights Movement, this should be the one. An exquisite tool for high school and college teachers of history, women’s studies, African American studies, and related subjects. Ella Baker, Fannie Lou Hamer, Unita Blackwell, and countless others at last get the recognition they deserve.” — Pricilla Murolo, Professor of History and Director of the Women’s History program, Sarah Lawrence
Victoria Jackson Gray Adams

Victoria Jackson Gray Adams at the 1964 Democratic convention. By George Ballis/Take Stock.
“A powerful and moving film about ordinary women armed with sheer determination…” — Jennifer Moffet, Jackson Free Press

  1. I drop a leave a response each time I appreciate a post on
    a website or if I have something to contribute to the
    conversation. It is a result of the fire communicated in the post
    I read. And on this post WOMYNS HERITAGE MONTH 2013 FILM SERIES IN
    HARLEM BEGINS TONIGHT @ 7PM! | peoplessurvivalprogram.
    I was moved enough to drop a commenta response 🙂 I do have a couple of questions
    for you if it’s okay. Could it be simply me or does it give the impression like a few of these comments come across like they are coming from brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are posting at additional social sites, I would like to keep up with you. Would you make a list every one of all your community pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
