Last night we watched a screening of Academy Award®-winning director Jonathan Demme’s documentary film, I’m Carolyn Parker: The Good, the Mad, and the Beautiful. The film profiles Carolyn Parker, a fearless civil rights activist and resident of the Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans, and her five-year crusade to rebuild her beloved house, her church, her community — and her life — after Hurricane Katrina. Her courage and resiliency are inspirational.
What would you do if you had to walk in her shoes for five years?
This inspirational portrait documentary film can be seen online at PBS through December 13, 2012.
