March 7th, 2018 7:00 PM The Rape of Recy Taylor, A Film Screening and Panel Discussion
Join us a day early to celebrate International Women's Day.
WBAI's Joy of Resistance is hosting an advance screening of the newly released critically acclaimed film: "THE RAPE OF RECY TAYLOR" (http://therapeofrecytaylor.com/) directed by Nancy Buirski.
Doors open at 6:30 PM; screening at 7:00 PM, followed by panel & discussion. This is a benefit for WBAI (https://wbai.org/) w/admission at the door. To order tickets in advance at a reduced rate: https://tinyurl.com/yccpehcr.
We have a terrific panel to discuss the film afterwards: Dr. Kimberle Crenshaw, Danielle McGuire (on Skype), CarolAnne Dolan, and Soraya Nadia McDonald.
The story, while devastating in many ways, is told exquisitely and poetically and is full of period photos, documents, excerpts of earlier films (including "race films" made by the Black community) and period music that creates its own atmosphere.
Please turn out to support WBAI on March 7, and celebrate International Women's Day with this great film and an important discussion about the issues it raises and the lessons it holds for today.
