Synopsis

24 year-old African-American Recy Taylor was a mother and sharecropper who was raped by a gang of six white boys in Alabama, 1944. This was a common occurrence in the US southern states which at the time enforced Jim Crow racial segregation laws, but Recy Taylor bravely chose to identify her rapists. Led by the NAACP’s chief rape investigator Rosa Parks, she rallied community support which demanded justice and became a spark for racial equality in the US. Combining footage from classic films with emotional modern day testimony, this documentary is a sensitive and important examination of a significant moment within the Civil Rights Movement.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
