“You don’t know what I got” 
Life. Love. Passion. Five women lay their heart and soul on the line: singer/songwriter Ani DiFranco, activist/poet Linda Finney, police officer Julie Brunzell, artist/architect Myrtle Stedman and housekeeper Jimmie Woodruff. Through a tapestry of homespun stories, confessions, advice, music and poetry, we discover a cross-section of American women with an extraordinary passion for life.

“We Shall Not Be Moved: The Nashville Sit-ins”
The Nashville Sit-ins of 1960 were among the most important events of the Civil Rights Movement. Over a period of several months, college students from Fisk University and other schools staged a very well-organized, non-violent protest at downtown lunch counters. The protests caught the city’s white establishment off-guard and culminated in the mayor agreeing to end segregation of lunch counters while facing thousands of protestors gathered on the steps of City Hall and the eyes of the nation watching. It was just the first step in ending segregation in all facets of life throughout the city and it inspired similar movements throughout the South.

Excerpt from “We Shall Not Be Moved: The Chattanooga Sit-ins” from Mindflow Media on Vimeo.

“We Shall Not Be Moved: The Chattanooga Sit-ins”
In February of 1960, at the same time that the better-known Nashville lunch counter sit-ins were taking place, students in Chattanooga staged their own, similar protest. As there was no local college for black students at the time, the Chattanooga protests were organized and carried out by Howard High School students. Their inspiring, first-hand accounts of the sit-ins bring to life the dangers and fears they endured to force change in their own community and our country. Their participation in the movement confirmed the endless potential and power that youth can have when it is motivated to do good.
