THERE’S YOUR READY GIRL

Screening & Discussion

 Wednesday October 27th, 2021

5:30 to 6:30 PM 

at the Tompkins Center for History & Culture in the CAP ArtSpace


Please join us for an encore screening of READY GIRL and an update on the feature film from which it is excerpted MOVE WHEN THE SPIRIT SAYS MOVE.

PhotoSynthesis Productions and the Dorothy Cotton Institute are thrilled to report that we have received the significant grant money we need to complete production of our feature length documentary film about the life and legacy of Dorothy Cotton - MOVE WHEN THE SPIRIT SAYS MOVE.  We are now able to gather interviews and tell Dorothy's life story as an inspiration for our society to understand and act on the power of full citizenship.  

Our short film THERE'S YOUR READY GIRL was an important factor in gaining this recognition and funding.

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 recorded 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.


COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOLS

Only 30 people will be permitted to attend this screening in person due to the space limitations in the room. Masks must be worn covering nose and mouth for the full length of the program. Learn more at thehistorycenter.net/health
