The Rape of Recy Taylor

Recy Taylor, a 24-year-old black mother and sharecropper, was gang raped by six white boys in 1944 Alabama. Common in Jim Crow South, few women spoke up in fear for their lives. Not Recy Taylor, who bravely identified her rapists. The NAACP sent its chief rape investigator Rosa Parks, who rallied support and triggered an unprecedented outcry for justice.

“And there's someone else, Recy Taylor, a name I know and I think you should know too.”
– Oprah Winfrey

“A stirring, infuriating marvel.”
– RogerEbert.com

"Not to be missed."
– The Nation

"It’s essential viewing.”
– The New Yorker
