Madeline Anderson became, in 1978, the 1st African-American woman to executive-produce a nationally aired TV series: @pbs "The Infinity Factory". Her short "I Am Somebody" screens TONIGHT as a part of @bamcinematek's #OneWayOrAnother: Black Women's Cinema. "I Am Somebody" (1970) shows 400 black women hospital workers on strike in Charleston, SC struggling for equal wages, justice & dignity, and features Coretta Scott King (pictured).
We continue to celebrate black filmmakers this month - who inspires you to fight for justice?
