Movies on a Big Screen will show two documentaries that plumb the always controversial reproductive rights issue when it screens "Motherhood By Choice, Not Chance" and "We Always Resist." The docs will be followed by a panel discussion.
"Motherhood by Choice, Not Chance," was directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Dorothy Fadiman and based on the trilogy, "From the Back-Alleys to the Supreme Court & Beyond." The 2004 film brings alive the struggle for women's reproductive rights in the U.S. and the chilling facts about the current threat to those rights.
This 24-minute "We Always Resist," from 2011, provides an informative history of the struggle for reproductive choice within African American communities and argues that black women have always considered reproductive choice a fundamental part of how they defined liberation for themselves and their communities.
The panel that follows the films include Dr. Glennah Trochet, former Sacramento County Public Heath Officer; Ana Sandoval, of Planned Parenthood; and Christi H. Ketchum, with Our Rightful Place.
