Recy Taylor (pictured above), a 24-year-old African-American mother and sharecropper, was gang raped by six white boys in 1944 Alabama. Common in Jim Crow South, few women spoke up in fear for their lives. Not Recy Taylor, who bravely identified her rapists.

The crime was extensively covered in the black press and an early catalyst for the civil rights movement.

Please join me in honoring Recy Taylor's legacy by attending a very special screening of The Rape of Recy Taylor and discussion hosted by Felicia Horowitz and GLIDE in honor of Black History Month.

Date & Time: Saturday, February 10, 2018 | 11:30 AM to 3:00 PM

Hope to see you there,

FILM SYNOPSIS: Recy Taylor, a 24-year-old black mother and sharecropper, was gang raped by six white boys in 1944 Alabama. Common in Jim Crow South, few women spoke up in fear for their lives. Not Recy Taylor, who bravely identified her rapists. The NAACP sent its chief rape investigator Rosa Parks, who rallied support and triggered an unprecedented outcry for justice.
