A 2017 documentary film profiles Recy Taylor, the Alabama woman mentioned by Oprah Winfrey in her widely-shared Golden Globes speech. While accepting the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement Award, Winfrey briefly told the story of Taylor, a young black woman who was gang raped by six while males while walking home from church in 1944 Alabama. Taylor pursued justice along with the help of NAACP investigator Rosa Parks, who would go on to become an icon of the civil rights movement. Taylor died on December 28, 2017. The documentary film "The Rape of Recy Taylor," directed by Nancy Buirski, screened at the 2017 New York Film Festival, and will be released later this year. – MASHABLE
