FUNDI: THE STORY OF ELLA BAKER: Film Screening
March 22 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
FUNDI: THE STORY OF ELLA BAKER reveals the instrumental role that Ella Baker, a friend and advisor to Martin Luther King, played in shaping the American civil rights movement. The dynamic activist was affectionately known as the Fundi, a Swahili word for a person who passes skills from one generation to another.
By looking at the 1960s from the perspective of Baker, the “godmother of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee,” FUNDI adds an essential understanding of the U.S. civil rights movement.
