“NYT Critics’ Pick! Planting a flag firmly at the intersection of patriarchy, sexism and white supremacy, The Rape of Recy Taylor is a documentary of multiple layers and marvelous gumption.” – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times

On the night of September 3, 1944, a young African-American mother from Abbeville, Alabama, named Recy Taylor was walking home from church with two friends when she was abducted by seven white men, driven away and dragged into the woods, raped by six of the men, and left to make her way home.

Against formidable odds and endless threats to her life and the lives of her family members, Taylor chose not to remain silent, but instead to bravely speak up and press charges, waging a war for justice that still resonates today. Through archival footage, early “race films,” and heartbreaking personal interviews, award-winning filmmaker Nancy Buirski’s (The Loving Story) passionate documentary shines a light on a case that became a turning point in the early Civil Rights Movement, and on the many formidable women—including Rosa Parks—who brought the movement to life.
