Anne Braden documentary premieres Sunday August 26
Our Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research is co-sponsor of the Louisville Premiere of Anne Braden: Southern Patriot.
This film is a first-person documentary about the extraordinary life of Anne Braden, the American civil rights leader and Louisville native after whom our institute is named. When charged with sedition for attempting to desegregate a Louisville neighborhood in 1954, Braden used the attack to embrace a lifetime of racial justice organizing matched by few whites in American History.
More information and a trailer for the film can be found on the Anne Braden Institute website.
