I Am Somebody

Dir. Madeline Anderson
1970, 30min, BluRay

 

Trailblazing black filmmaker Madeline Anderson directs this chronicle of a watershed moment in both the civil rights and labor movements: when 400 black women hospital workers in South Carolina stood up to the National Guard to demand union recognition.

 
Harlan County USA

Dir. Barbara Kopple
1976, 103min, 35mm

 

Barbara Kopple’s Oscar-winning documentary classic is an electrifying look at a tense, year-long standoff between striking Kentucky coal miners and the union-busting corporation determined to squash them. It’s a gut-punching chronicle not only of the men on the picket lines, but of their heroic wives, who are the indispensable driving force behind the struggle (just wait for the moment one pulls a pistol out of her bra).
