The Esperanza Peace and Justice Center and The Texas RioGrande Legal Aid invite you to a film screening of The Rape of Recy Taylor.

If you thought that Rosa Parks' efforts in the Civil Rights Movement began on a Montgomery bus in 1954, you only know half the story.

'The Rape of Recy Taylor' is the untold history of Black women who spoke up when danger was greatest, shared the truths of their oppression when the threat was the strongest, and how their courage seeded the fight to stop violence against women of color, and the march for justice that carries on today.

Join us at the Esperanza Peace & Justice Center on Friday, Feb. 28 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. for a screening of this important film followed by a community discussion with Texas Rio Grande Legal Aid (TRLA) on how sexual harassment against women of color can be fought against in the workplace and beyond.
