I Am Somebody: Three Documentaries by Madeline Anderson

  • In Conversation
  • Director of the documentary program at UC Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism

A cinematic snapshot of the civil rights movement across the United States in 1960, from Montgomery, Alabama, to Brooklyn, Integration Report 1 includes speeches from many leaders of the movement. A Tribute to Malcolm X combines archival footage of the civil rights leader with an interview with his widow, Betty Shabazz. I Am Somebody documents the 1969 strike of black hospital workers in Charleston, South Carolina, over the course of which more than a thousand strikers, students, and civil rights activists were jailed. All but twelve of the 400 strikers were women, and Anderson tells the story from a distinctly feminist point of view.
