On August 3, 1952, the small city of Live Oak, FL was shaken in a way no residents would have predicted. A wealthy Black woman, Ruby McCollum, shot and killed a prominent white doctor after experiencing years of sexual abuse at his hands. The aftermath led residents of the Jim Crow South and across the country to examine the intersection of race, sex, and the criminalization of Black survivors in the justice system. Join us during SAAM for the film screening and panel discussion of the Ruby McCollum story.
