Embrace Mothers Film Screening & Panel
Jan 09 2023
Join The Penny Foundation and the City of Birmingham for a screening of the documentary film “Storming Caesars Palace.”
“Based on the book Storming Caesars Palace: How Black Mothers Fought Their Own War on Poverty by Annelise Orleck, the film challenges the pernicious lie of the ‘Welfare Queen,’ and highlights the visionary leadership of low-income grassroots organizers whose courage, tenacity, and dreams could not be quashed, against all odds.”
The film will be followed by a discussion with Mayor Randall L. Woodfin as part of the Embrace Mothers guaranteed income initiative.
