What: Screening of Reflections Unheard: Black Women in Civil Rights plus shorts from recent Shut Down Yarls Wood protests.

‘Reflections Unheard is a feature length documentary, and the first of its kind to focus exclusively on black women’s contributions and experiences during the Civil Rights era. Through the personal stories of several former black female Civil Rights activists, Reflections Unheard: Black Women in Civil Rights unearths the lesser-known story of black women’s political marginalization between the male-dominated Black Power movement, and the predominantly white and middle class Feminist movement during the 1960s and 70s, as well as the resulting mobilization of black and other women of color into a united Feminist movement

This is also a chance to find out more about the upcoming Shut Down Yarls Wood demo Saturday 13th May. This is a free event, donations will go towards giving free coach spaces for people without papers to come on the protest.
