LEFT ON PEARL (Preview Screening)
What happens when Boston's 1971 International Women's Day marchers turn LEFT ON PEARL Street in Cambridge, and seize and occupy a Harvard-owned building for a women's center, on land sought by the largely African-American Riverside neighborhood for affordable housing? How and why did hundreds of women of diverse backgrounds decide to take a radical, collective action that would change their lives? How did this action intersect with the surrounding African-American neighborhood's fight against displacement by Harvard University's expansion? What is its lasting legacy 45 years later?
