Legacy: Women of Southeast Ohio, is series of documentary films highlighting the incredible accomplishments of four Southeastern Ohio women who have dedicated their lives to education, community action, activism and social justice.

The women featured in the films are Ada Woodson Adams, local historian, civil rights activist and former President and co-founder of the Multicultural Genealogical Center in Chesterhill, Ohio; Carol Kuhre, community organizer, social and economic justice stalwart, and Co-Founder/former Executive Director of Rural Action; Dr. Francine Childs, Professor Emerita of African American Studies at Ohio University, civil rights and social justice activist; and Dr. Dru Riley Evarts, Professor Emerita, Scripps Journalism School at Ohio University, and three time Ohio Alumna.

The film project is directed and produced by Athens, Ohio musician and filmmaker, Liz Pahl. The Legacy team is comprised of Andie Walla, Delia Palmisano and Melissa Salpietra. This important film project was made possible through support from the Athens County Foundation’s Women’s Fund, Stuart’s Opera House Afterschool Music Program, the Flournoy and Voss families, Ohio University Women’s Center and the many supporters of the film’s GoFundme campaign.

Directly after the premiere there will be a moderated Q&A with the filmmakers and the incredible women in the film.

Please join us for a reception of drinks, snacks & desserts immediately following the event.

All ticket sale proceeds will be donated to the Mt. Zion Baptist Church Preservation Society.
