It's a Southern thing. You wouldn't understand. Redneck pride! Stars and Bars forever!

I'm not pulling in the caboose. Me first!
Recy Taylor, a 24-year-old black mother and sharecropper, was raped by seven white men.

Following the vicious attack that left Recy Taylor internally damaged, she refused to be silenced and spoke up with help from the NAACP’s Chief Rape Investigator Rosa Parks (yes, the brave civil rights champion who would later sit on a bus in protest).

Hell no to right wing racists on campus!
When Parks went to interview Taylor, the local sheriff kept driving past the house and eventually burst in, threatening Parks with arrest if she didn’t leave town.

Southern Horrors: Women...
Parks left and then launched the Alabama Committee for Equal Justice for Mrs. Recy Taylor, triggering a movement to seek justice 11 years before Parks became a civil rights hero for refusing to give up her bus seat to a white man, launching the Montgomery bus boycott.

A new film looks at the 1944 gang rape. DN! speaks with the film’s director, Nancy Buirski, and with Yale historian Crystal Feimster, author of Southern Horrors: Women and the Politics of Rape and Lynching (A). More
