Free Noontime Screening of (Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)

“An eloquent and powerful film”… “Incredibly moving”… “One of the most powerful documentaries about the workers movement.” Memphis, Spring 1968 marked the dramatic climax of the Civil Rights movement. "At the River I Stand" skillfully reconstructs the two eventful months that transformed a strike by Memphis sanitation workers into a national conflagration, and disentangles the complex historical forces that came together with the inevitability of tragedy at the death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The 56-minute film screens for free at noon today at the AFL-CIO; bring your lunch, beverages provided. Co-sponsored by the DC Labor FilmFest and the AFL-CIO.
