New York Film Festival Official Selection presents THE RAPE OF RECY TAYLOR, Directed by Nancy Buirski. Before there was #MeToo, there was Recy Taylor. Oprah said her name (and invoked her spirit) at the Golden Globes. Now learn her story. The movie will be followed by a Director Q&A. Just to give you a little background info, Recy Taylor, a 24-year-old black mother, and sharecropper was gang-raped by six white boys in 1944 Alabama. Common in Jim Crow South, few women spoke up in fear for their lives. Not Recy Taylor, who bravely identified her rapists.
