Film: "AN ORDINARY HERO"

The amazing true story of one young woman's courage to help change the world. As a little girl growing up in the South, Joan Trumpauer Mulholland witnessed the ugly realities of segregation and racism firsthand and vowed to one day do something about it.  By the time she was 19 years old, Joan had already participated in over three dozen sit-ins and protests when she was jailed in Mississippi's notorious Parchman Penitentiary, on its death row after joining the Freedom Rides... but that was just the beginning of an incredible true story that has inspired millions around the world.  Directed by award-winning filmmaker Loki Mulholland, "AN ORDINARY HERO" is an empowering tribute tio the human spirit that is sure to inspire people of all ages to do what is right even when it isn't easy. (2013, 90 minutes)
