Event Details

In 1944, Recy Taylor, a young wife and mother, was kidnapped at gunpoint on her way home from church and brutally raped by a gang of white teenagers in her Alabama town. With the help of Civil Rights investigator Rosa Parks, Taylor reported the crime and Black-owned newspapers gave it national attention. Although her assailants went unpunished, Taylor’s story resonates with today’s #MeToo movement and inspires women to speak up against sexual violence.

Moderator: Jessica Arons, ACLU
