Rachel by Angelina Grimké
Directed by Lori Parquet
In Angelina Grimke’s recently rediscovered 1916 classic Rachel, a young woman is so horrified by racism around her that she vows never to bring children into the world. Rachel Loving longs to be a mother, but after seeing the devastating effects of racism on the children she cares for, and learning the tragic and horrifying fate of her father and brother she resolves never to marry. Grimke hoped that Rachel would educate audiences about the devastating psychological effects of racism as well as the inhumanity of lynching.
