Equal Means Equal screens in May
Memphis Women in Film and Memphis Area Women's Council present three free community screenings in May of the feature documentary Equal Means Equal, an unflinching look at how women are treated in the U.S. The screenings are at Malco Ridgeway (May 2, 7 p.m.), Crosstown Arts (May 8, 7 p.m.), and the National Civil Rights Museum (May 16, 6 p.m.). The film runs 93 minutes. The May 16 screening will be followed by refreshments and a panel discussion.

Photographs, audio recordings, footage and mixed media from the Jan. 21 Memphis and Washington, D.C., Women’s Marches combine in Inaugurate the Resistance to create an immersive and participatory experience at Crosstown Arts in Midtown May 3-8.
Collaborating artists include photographer Yolanda James, Joann Self Selvidge (True Story Pictures), and Sara Kaye Larson (Maps & Weather Productions), with support from co-curators Leah Keys (Spillit), and Jamie Harmon (Amurica).
Memphians are invited to contribute their photographs for the storytelling wall, and on both opening and closing nights, organizers will record interviews with Women's March participants to share on Storycorps.me. These interviews will be donated to the Crossroads to Freedom Digital Archive at Rhodes College and to the Library of Congress. Submit photos here.
