“Anne Braden: Southern Patriot” Film Screening at Monkeywrench Books with filmmaker Anne Lewis

Nov 18 2012 7:00 pm

Anne Braden was hailed by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as a white southerner whose rejection of her segregationist upbringing was “eloquent and prophetic.” Ostracized as a “red” in the 1950s, she fought for an inclusive movement community and mentored three generations of social justice advocates. The documentary http://www.annelewis.org/Anne_braden.html explores not only the dangers of racism and political repression but also the power of a woman’s life spent in commitment to social justice. 

The screening will be followed by a discussion with filmmaker Anne Lewis http://www.annelewis.org/.

Location: MonkeyWrench Books, 110 E. North Loop, Austin, 78751 http://www.monkeywrenchbooks.org/
