The Rape of Recy Taylor
Directed by Nancy Buirski
Recy Taylor, a Black woman, overcame her own trauma and bravely identified her white rapists in 1944 – a rarity in the Jim Crow South. The NAACP’s rape investigator, a woman named Rosa Parks, rallied support and triggered an unprecedented outcry for justice.
This tale of personal trauma and shared bravery shines a light on the Black women who spoke up when danger was greatest.
Cast: Cynthia Erivo
