Civil Rights leader Dorothy Cotton got things done. Throughout her long life she organized, she spoke out, she challenged the status quo. Her largely unknown story inspires us today to embrace the power and responsibilities of citizenship -- to be fully engaged in a community and a nation that embodies equity and justice. THERE'S YOUR READY GIRL explores the powerful resonance between Dorothy’s work and the work that continues today, often led by Black women. This short was produced during the COVID pandemic with footage collected for an upcoming feature film about Dorothy’s legacy. Director: Deborah C. Hoard Writer: Rachel Ferro & Deborah C Hoard.
