ACLU-TN Goes to the Movies

 

Celebrating Freedom, Fighting for Justice

Did you know that ACLU represented Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. after the city of Memphis denied him the right to stage a 1968 march in support of striking sanitation workers? Or that the infamous 1925 Monkey Trial, in which attorney Clarence Darrow defended teacher John Scopes in a challenge to Tennessee’s law banning the teaching of evolution, was an ACLU case?

You can learn more about these cases and the rest of ACLU-TN’s rich history in the newly released short film, Celebrating Freedom, Fighting for Justice. This brief documentary showcases the voices of ACLU-TN clients, allies and community leaders—people like: As 2014 comes to a close and we reflect on the challenges we have faced this year and those that lie ahead, it’s the perfect time to consider ACLU’s accomplishments in Tennessee over the past century. Celebrating Freedom, Fighting for Justice reminds us of where we have been, and where we are going.

Thank you for being there with us every step of the way.
