In September 1944, a young African American woman named Recy Taylor was raped by six white men in Alabama. In spite of all the threats made against her and her loved ones, Recy Taylor bravely decided to speak up and press charges, launching a high-profile campaign led by Rosa Parks. Nancy Buirski's powerful documentary recounts this turning point in the early Civil Rights Movement.

"Essential viewing, not least for its emphasis on the crucial role of women in the Civil Rights Movement." - New Yorker
