The Rape of Recy Taylor

The Rape of Recy Taylor

Details

Otley Film Society are marking Black History Month with a screening of this powerful documentary.  

Recy Taylor, a 24-year-old black mother and sharecropper, was gang raped by 6 white boys in 1944 Alabama. Recy bravely identified her rapists, and the NAACP (Nat Association for the Advancement of Coloured People) sent in its chief rape investigator, Rosa Parks, who rallied support and triggered an unprecedented outcry for justice. This film exposes a legacy of physical abuse of black women and reveals Rosa Parks' intimate role in Recy Taylor's momentous story.
