As a follow-up to Traci Parker’s talk at Opening Meeting, the Centennial Commemoration Committee will hold a Zoom discussion of the documentary film, Standing on My Sisters’ Shoulders.

The film tells the story of the achievements of the heroic women of the Civil Rights Movement from the fields of the Mississippi Delta to the floor of the U.S. Congress. The trailer for this film can be viewed on YouTube.

Parts of the film are also available on YouTube, but to see the entire film use Kanopy, which is available through the Jones Library (start here) and at many other libraries. If this service is not offered by your local library, all residents of MA can get a Boston Public Library e-card here and access Kanopy though their Online Resources/Streaming and Downloadable Media links.

Please join the discussion of this film, led by LWVA’s Andrea Battle and moderated by Jessica Ryan, at 7 p.m. on November 12. Please contact after November 5 to obtain information about joining this meeting. (This information will be e-mailed to members prior to November 5.)
