Wednesdays in Mississippi: 50th Anniversary Celebration

Fifty years ago, a group of women took on the problem of racism in the American South. We studied this little known story of women collaborating across geographic, racial, and religious boundaries through documentary clips of Wednesdays in Mississippi activists. Watch the recording to explore the challenges and benefits of creating social change through community coalitions and discuss ways to connect this story to conversations about activism within your own communities.
