    "A complex image is created of the times, its ideas, emotions, victories and losses...the kind of analysis historical documentaries on African American life sorely need."
    Collis Davis

    "**** Excellent."
    Video Rating Guide for Libraries

    “…the film makes a powerful case for the central place in African American women in creating a broadly imagined social justice movement - the kind of movement we need now, as desperately as ever.”
    Lisa Duggan, Professor
    Department of Social and Cultural Analysis, New York University

    “It’s one of the most teachable films I know….The Film captures in powerful and passionate ways the intersections of race, gender, sexuality, class and ability in ways that few films do.
    Sivagami Subbaraman, Director
    LGBTQ Resource Center, Georgetown University
