Film & Discussion: Jackson.
In Mississippi, a state of almost 3 million, there is now only one abortion clinic in Jackson. This award winning documentary is an intimate, unprecedented look at the lives of three women affected by the vicious and constant attacks to deny women abortions.
"Maisie Crow's Jackson, about the last-remaining abortion clinic in the state of Mississippi, where the Dixie flag still flies over the capital, brings to mind Nina Simone's song "Mississippi Goddam." She wrote it after Medgar Evers' 1963 assassination in Jackson. Watching this documentary about the embattled clinic, audiences will wonder if anything has changed since then."- Film Journal International
