Braden, who was favorably mentioned by Dr. Martin Luther King in his 1963 “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” was very involved in activities in North Carolina, which are depicted in the film. A panel discussion of community members will follow the screening. One of the filmmakers, Anne Lewis, will be on hand as well. More information about the film is at http://annebradenfilm.org/.
