Patsy Mink: Ahead of the Majority directed by Kimberlee Bassford (USA, 2008, 56 min, Documentary) Patsy Takemoto Mink made headline news in 1965 when she became the first woman of color to serve in the U.S Congress. An outspoken liberal, Mink stood out for her opposition to the Vietnam War and her fierce advocacy for equality and justice in America. Award-winning filmmaker Kimberlee Bassford chronicles the fascinating life of this pioneering politician who co-authored Title IX, the 1972 landmark decision prohibiting sex discrimination in schools, whether in education or athletics. Patsy Mink: Ahead of the Majority is the story of this dynamic trailblazer who, battling racism and sexism, redefined American politics. Film screening starts 9:15 PM.
