Introducing The Ella Baker Documentary

FUNDI: Ella Baker Documentary (48 mins.)
This film reveals the instrumental role that Ella Baker, a friend and advisor to Martin Luther King, played in shaping the American civil rights movement. The dynamic activist was affectionately known as the Fundi, a Swahili word for a person who passes skills from one generation to another. By looking at the 1960s from the perspective of Baker, the “godmother of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee,” FUNDI adds an essential understanding of the U.S. civil rights movement.

Film followed by brief discussion. $7 suggested donation to go to the: http://iamvt2.org/ project, challenging racial micro-aggressions in VT. Wheel chair accessible. Child care provided. Please refrain from wearing any fragrances.
