Description: The Rape of Recy Taylor is the epic story of sexual violence in Jim Crow South. It is the little-known story of courageous black women who waged war to take back their bodies and their dignity, and whose vocal protests helped inspire the Civil Rights Movement 10 years later. Boldly speaking up against her rapists and putting her life and that of her family’s in grave danger, Recy Taylor attracted the attention of the NAACP and their chief investigator Rosa Parks. Parks, commonly believed to be a tired seamstress who refused to give up her seat on the bus in 1955 triggering the Montgomery Bus Boycott, was, in fact, an activist, working for years to undo years of criminal rapes and physical abuse against black women.
