On Sunday, February 3 at 2 p.m., to celebrate the start of Black History Month, we’ll screen “Justice is a Black Woman – The Life and Work of Constance Baker Motley”.
Motley’s tireless work on behalf of justice and equality changed American society forever. She is one of the true heroines of the Civil Rights movement in America. From humble beginnings in New Haven, Connecticut, she became a lawyer, a New York senator, Manhattan Borough President, and served as a federal judge. Narrated by Juan Williams, this film's writer is Little Theatre of Manchester member Susan E. Bailey and the director is her husband Michael Calia. It was produced by Quinnipiac University and has won an independent film festival award.
