LIVING WITH PRIDE: RUTH C. ELLIS @ 100Directed by Yvonne Welbon/1999/USA/60mins
We’re bringing back one of our first films to be screened under the stars from director Yvonne Welbon. We invite a whole new generation to share company with Ruth Ellis, a courageous activist who recognized her lesbian identity at the age of 20 in the year 1919. (That’s not a typo). Ruth lived her life actively through some of society’s most revolutionary movements including the civil rights movement and the feminist movement. We learn an appreciation for what it was like for Ruth to be a black, feminist, lesbian growing up in the 20th century. A truly engaging experience!
