Screening and Discussion with Legendary Filmmaker Madeline Anderson January 20 ~Pleasantville, NY~

Trailblazing filmmaker Madeline Anderson, often credited with being the first black woman to produce and direct a televised documentary film, believed that film must inspire social change. We’ll show two examples of her influential work: her first film, Integration Report 1, a 1960 examination of the struggle for black equality; and I Am Somebody, a document of a 1969 struggle for labor rights in Charleston, SC, led by 400 black female hospital workers, featuring a rousing speech from Coretta Scott King.
