How to Sue the Klan: The Legacy of the Chattanooga Five

February 17 @ 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Free
Join us at the Downtown Library for a free screening and panel discussion of the documentary How to Sue the Klan: The Legacy of the Chattanooga Five.
How to Sue the Klan is the story of how Five Black women from Chattanooga used legal ingenuity to take on the Ku Klux Klan in a historic 1982 civil case, fighting to hold them accountable for their crimes and bring justice to their community. Their victory set a legal precedent that continues to inspire the ongoing fight against organized hate.
The screening will feature a panel discussion with Director and Producer John Beder, writer and historian Rita Lorraine Hubbard, and Ardena Garth-Hicks, president of Chattanooga Endeavors, Inc.
