Women that take Wing: Angela and Yuri

Hat tip to Colorlines.com.

Be on the lookout  for this documentary appearing at film festivals and small theaters when it comes near you.  
Mountains That Take Wing is a series of conversations that span 13 years between 60s activists Angela Davis and Yuri Kochiyama.   Many people under 50 are probably familiar with the names but not exactly sure who these two women are.  Hopefully the film can spark renewed interest in the role of women in the Civil Rights Movement and the connection between the African American and Asian American communities of that time.
