Anne Braden: Southern Patriot

Anne Braden: Southern Patriot is a first-person documentary about the extraordinary life of this American civil rights leader and Louisville native. 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. Ostracized as a "red," but praised by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as one of the civil rights movement's staunchest white allies, Braden fought for an inclusive movement community and mentored three generations of activists.
