Tuesday, April 9 | 4-5:30 p.m. | LI 103

Join us as we celebrate black women’s leadership with our screening of the award-winning documentary “Standing On My Sisters’ Shoulders,” followed by discussion. We’ll meet in Library Room 103.

A powerful portrayal of a missing chapter in our nation’s record of the Civil Rights movement, this powerful film 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.

Their living testimony offers a window into a unique moment when the founders’ promise of freedom and justice passed from rhetoric to reality for all Americans.
