A documentary, which shines a light on a forgotten hero of the black women's movement, who fought tirelessly alongside Rosa Parks. The film focuses on the sexual assault of 24-year-old Taylor - a mother and sharecropper - in 1944 Alabama at the hands of six white boys. Very few women dared to speak up about their ordeals but Taylor risked her life to identify her attackers and issue a rallying cry for justice, aided by Parks, who was working at that time as a rape investigator for the NAACP.
