Friday, September 13, 2019 - 6:30pm

Anne Lewis, documentary producer of a "Strike and Uprising (in Texas)" returns to the Carver to screen her short about Stephen F. Austin cleaner Annie Mae Carpenter. Carpenter filed a wrongful dismissal suit against the college that sparked the protest featured in "Strike and Uprising". Lewis said, "I never find a picture of her [and] she's somebody that everyone should know about in Texas. We should know about her the way we know about Rosa Parks."

Lewis' short will be followed by "American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs".
