Alabama Film Week: Shuttlesworth (2022) w/ Q&A

The story of the unknown Freedom Fighter who started a Movement that changed the world.

J. Whitson

Filmmakers J. Whitson and T. Marie King are scheduled to be in attendance. A Q&A will follow the screening. Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth was raised in the crucible of segregated Birmingham but he was forged by its attempt to kill him. When the KKK planted a bomb underneath his bed and he emerged unharmed, he was sure he was saved by God to lead a Movement. His work not only ended legal segregation but led directly to the Civil and Voting Rights Acts - and inspired freedom movements around the world. Filming locations: Birmingham, AL
