Austin Beloved Community presents Film Screening: A Strike And An Uprising (In Texas)
In 1938, Emma Tenayuca led 10,000 pecan sheller's in a massive strike. In 1987, black women led a march of 3,000 through the streets of Nacogdoches. Experimental and contemporary, this documentary recovers stories of working people in Texas and demonstrates the power of labor and liberation.
Filmmaker Anne Lewis will engage in a Q&A after the screening.
