I Am Somebody 1970 30 min Color in English Not Rated In 1969, 400 poorly paid black women hospital workers in Charleston, South Carolina went on strike to demand union recognition and a wage increase, only to find themselves in a confrontation with the National Guard and the state government. Supported by such notables as Andrew Young, Charles Abernathy, and Coretta Scott King, the women nonetheless conducted a strike under the guidance of District 1199, the New York based union, and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. A testament to the courage of these women who would not be humbled, the now classic I AM SOMEBODY is both an inspiring film and an important historical record. Integration Report 1 1960 21 min Color in English Not Rated Shot by the Maysles Brothers and Richard Leacock, INTEGRATION REPORT 1 features haunting singing by a young Maya Angelou and captures the marches, sit-ins, rallies and boycotts in the months leading up to the first attempt at a march on Washington. (Notes from Harvard Film Archive) A Tribute to Malcolm X 1967 14 min Color in English Not Rated Discusses the influence of the famous activist and includes an interview with his widow, Betty Shabazz.
