About the Film:

Through the personal stories of several former Black female Civil Rights activists, Reflections Unheard: Black Women in Civil Rights unearths the lesser-known story of black women's political marginalization between the male-dominated Black Power movement and the predominantly white and middle class Feminist movement during the 1960s and '70s, as well as the resulting mobilization of black and other women of color into a united Feminist movement. Reflections Unheard is a feature length documentary, and the first of its kind to focus exclusively on black women's contributions and experiences during the Civil Rights era.
