Anne Braden: Southern Patriot

Thursday 13 November 2014, rrganized by : Emma Louise Mutrux, ACC/AFT Labor Film Series Presents Anne Braden: Southern Patriot.

Anne Braden: Southern Patriot (1924-2006) is a first person documentary about the extraordinary life of this American civil rights leader. Braden was hailed as a white southerner who was “eloquent and prophetic” by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in his 1963 Letter from Birmingham Jail. Ostracized as a “red,” she fought for an inclusive movement community and mentored three generations of social justice activists.
Join us at Riverside Campus (room 8100) at 7 pm on Thursday, November 13 for the screening and an open discussion with filmmaker Anne Lewis and The People's Task Force. Let's talk Ferguson, state repression, police brutality, and the birth of a new civil rights movement!
