Women’s Rights Day Celebration Film Showing - Rebel Hearts: The Grimke Sisters

A captivating documentary about the little known work of abolitionists Sarah and Angelina Grimke and the anti-slavery movement of the 19th century. Daughters of a wealthy slave-holding family, the Grimke sisters left family, friends and privilege to become some of the first women in the anti-slavery movement and in the front ranks of establishing the women’s rights movement. Learn lessons of their significant multi-issued endeavors and why this history is relevant today.

Dinner with vegetarian option, served at 6:00pm for a $9 donation. Door donation $3-5.

New Valencia Hall, 625 Larkin St., #202, San Francisco (between Eddy & Ellis Sts., 5 blocks from Civic Center BART, on the #19 and #31 Muni bus lines)
