Hey there Cultural Weekly community! Throughout March, Women’s History Month, LOOK WHAT SHE DID! is conducting our first fundraising campaign, and we’ll be releasing a new interview each week.
Click here (lookwhatshedid.causevox.com) to see our intro video with our crew talking about our project and what it means to each of us.
We’re kicking off our campaign with filmmaker Grace Lee telling us about activist Grace Lee Boggs, a woman ahead of her time with an inspiring message for us at this moment in our history. (Click on the image below to see the interview.)
We’re also celebrating our one-year anniversary as an official non-profit. It’s been an incredibly busy time — we’ve produced over two dozen interviews, gathered a strong Board of Directors, expanded our audience and developed a plan for the future that includes partnerships with schools, museums and community groups.
We are growing into a thriving, sustainable operation with national impact and we’re grateful that Cultural Weekly has been with us from the beginning. With your help we’ll do our first out-of-town shoot this summer, filming women in Tech in Silicon Valley, women in Science in Berkeley, and women in the Arts in Sausalito. We’re a little company with a big vision and we hope you will stand with us in support of our mission. Please donate now when your dollars mean so much.
Join us in rewriting history, one woman at a time.
Okay, so— here’s a woman WAY ahead of her time. Activist/philosopher Grace Lee Boggs, a Chinese-American woman born to immigrant parents in Brooklyn in the early 20th century dedicated her prodigious intellect and great heart to the causes of civil rights for African-Americans in Detroit. How’d she get there, this young girl out on her own, invisible because of racism, poverty and gender? Listen to filmmaker Grace Lee tell the fascinating — and relevant— story of a woman who made a difference.
