The film will be followed by a discussion with Deborah Menkart and Jenice View, co-editors of ""Putting the Movement Back Into Civil Rights Teaching" and Julian Hipkins, history teacher, Capital City Charter School.

About the film: 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, Arkansas, 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."
