In honor of Womens’ History Month, join us for a free virtual screening of the documentary Standing On My Sisters' Shoulders.
(60 min., Dirs. Joan Sadoff, Dr. Robert Sadoff and Laura J. Lipson, 2002)
A missing chapter of the Civil Rights movement, this powerful documentary reveals the movement in Mississippi in the 1950’s and 60’s from the point of view of the courageous women who lived it and emerged as its grassroots leaders. Through moving interviews and powerful archival footage, Standing On My Sisters' Shoulders weaves a story of commitment, passion and perseverance—and tells the story of the women who fought for change in Mississippi and altered the course of American history forever.

"A moving, must-see film of courageous Black women fighting for (and winning) their families' constitutional rights...a truly inspirational portrait."
Jacqueline Bobo, Prof. of Women's Studies and Black Studies, UC Santa Barbara
