Ep. 51- Recy Taylor
On the night of September 3rd, 1944, Recy Taylor was walking home from church when she was approached by a car full of 7 white men. They forced her at gun point to get into the vehicle and then drove her to "the spot" where they proceeded to brutally rape her. Being a black woman in the Jim Crow era, Recy knew the consequences if she spoke out against her attackers but she refused to stay silent. We talk about her story and how many got involved in Recy's case to seek justice.
'The Rape of Recy Taylor' will be showing in different cities throughout the year so please visit therapeofrecytaylor.com to see where it will be playing next.
