Screening & Discussion

Dorothy Cotton was a bold, highly effective and important civil rights leader, the only woman on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Executive Staff. In celebration of Black Women’s History Month, The History Center is sponsoring a screening of the award-winning short film THERE’S YOUR READY GIRL, which was produced during the pandemic with footage from the feature-length documentary currently production MOVE WHEN THE SPIRIT SAYS MOVE, about Dorothy’s life and legacy. Screening of the 11-minute film will be followed by a panel discussion on the role of women in Civil Rights history, featuring excerpts from a newly recorded interview with Ambassador Andrew Young and appearances by filmmaker Deborah C. Hoard, Dorothy Cotton Institute Fellows Laura Branca and Margo Hittleman and special guests.
