Ralph AbernathyWinona State University will feature the film “Reflections Unheard: Black Women in Civil Rights” at 7 p.m. Monday, March 23, in Harriet Johnson Auditorium, Somsen Hall.

The film aims to shed light on forgotten areas of both the Civil Rights and Feminist Movements and features African American female civil rights and feminist activists discussing their experiences during these movements. The film also explores fights with civil rights and feminism today.

African American females were frequently forgotten in these movements because the Civil Rights Movement predominantly focused on males and the Feminist Movement focused on Caucasians.

After the film there will be a student-led discussion.

This event is free and open to the public and is hosted by the Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies Department.
