There was a lively celebration of International Women’s Day in Detroit on Saturday, March 7, 2020.

The feature film “Harriet” was shown on the life, times and monumental contributions of anti-slavery organizer, underground railroad conductor and Civil War intelligence operative for the Union army, Aminata Ross, better known as Harriet Tubman.

A dinner was served, prepared by men before the film. Afterwards an important discussion was held on the movie and its significance in today’s times. A pamphlet entitled “Slavery, Emancipation and Women’s Suffrage” published by was distributed at the event.

The forum was sponsored by the Communist Workers League (CWL) and the other organizations housed at 5920 Second in Detroit.
