Free Movie Screening in new York: Daisy Bates: First Lady of Little Rock – Jan 10

Come out and enjoy a free movie screening in New York of Daisy Bates: First Lady of Little Rock. As a black woman who was a feminist before the term was invented, Daisy Bates refused to accept her assigned place in society. Daisy Bates: First Lady of Little Rock tells the story of her life and public support of nine black students who registered to attend the all-white Central High School in Little Rock, rkansas, which culminated in a constitutional crisis—pitting a president against a governor and a community against itself. Unconventional, revolutionary, and egotistical, Daisy Bates reaped the rewards of instant fame, but paid dearly for it.
