Sisters of Selma
Kathleen A. Barry | Santa Barbara, California | 03/28/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am working on a doctoral dissertation that is dealing with women's engagement of patriarchal structures; in particular the ways that Catholic nuns interacted with the hierarchy of the Church during the 1960's. As I watched this DVD, I was taken back to those turbulent times and remember watching live news coverage of the Selma marches. If you were alive during those times, this DVD will re-inspire you to the call of activism to fight injustice. If you were not yet born, this DVD will tell you the story of how peaceful interventions, determination, and collaboration among a diversity of people was possible and continues to be possible. This DVD has helped me reflect on how we need to rethink history ... to look at visual memories of people standing up to oppression, especially the Catholic sisters who broke their silence, I am encouraged that social change is a possibility."
