Madeline Anderson – I Am Somebody (1970)

Quote:
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.
