I’m looking forward to this documentary about a formidable Black woman— Dorothy Foreman Cotton! The citizenship schools that she, Septima Clark, Bernice Robinson, and others developed changed the game on voter registration during the civil rights movement!

It was soul stirring. This documentary should be a Netflix special on Sheroes. I respect Dr King but he didn't succeed on his own. Like Hidden Figures.... powerful women never get the recognition they deserve. Please show this for donations and a PBS or Netflix story.

Great documentary on Dr Dorothy Cotton. A great organizer for voting rights and a leading voice at SCLC. Recognizing her is long overdue on the contributions of black women in the civil rights movement. Looking forward to seeing the documentary.
