In an era when only white men had the access to equipment and airwaves to report the news, Madeline Anderson was a trailblazer. Working with many of the most famous documentarians of the era, Anderson created an incredible body of work, including: Integration Report 1 (1960), which was shot by the Maysles Brothers and Richard Leacock and captures the marches, sit-ins, rallies, and boycotts in the months leading up to the first attempt at a March on Washington; A Tribute to Malcolm X (1967), made for William Greaves’ Black Journal; and Anderson’s signature film I Am Somebody (1970), which documents the struggle of 400 black hospital workers in Charleston, South Carolina, who went on strike and demanded a fair wage increase.
