The Rape of Recy Taylor

Available on iTunes, Sundance Now, Prime Video
"The Rape of Recy Taylor" is a documentary about a 24-year old black mother and sharecropper who was gang raped by six white men in 1944 Alabama. She spoke up at the time and identified her rapists. The NAACP sent Rosa Parks, their chief investigator (and civil rights activist) to look into the case. Her representation and the community's rallied support triggered an unprecedented outcry for justice. She spoke up long before the #MeToo movement.
