ITVS Community Cinema presents DAISY BATES: FIRST LADY OF LITTLE ROCK (WDCJCC)
Sunday, January 22, 2012 at 3:00 PM (EST)
DAISY BATES: FIRST LADY OF LITTLE ROCK
A FILM BY SHARON LA CRUISE
FREE COMMUNITY CINEMA [DC] EVENT
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.
