"If you can show just one film on the Civil Rights Movement,
this should be the one."
Pricilla Murolo, 
Dir. Women's History program, Sarah Lawrence
Ava DuVernay's SELMA puts African-American perspectives of the civil rights movement at the forefront. This Black History Month, WMM celebrates the heroic women of the civil rights movement with the award-winning documentary STANDING ON MY SISTERS' SHOULDERS: the story of the Mississippi Civil Rights movement from the point of view of its remarkable and courageous women who changed the course of history. This film is important now more than ever given the racial climate of the country after Ferguson, subsequent events in NYC, and similar incidents happening across the nation, bringing a contemporary urgency to these issues.
