Saturday, February 24th at 3 pm, the featured film is a documentary about Maya Angelou, the amazingly versatile poet, memoirist, activist, and playwright. Running time 114 minutes.

The Women’s Committee is part of We Stand Together / Estamos Todos Juntos (WST/ETJ), a community organization formed on Martha’s Vineyard in November 2016. Its mission is to unite, organize and educate ourselves to protect our rights, our planet, and our democracy. In addition to the Women’s Committee, WST/ETJ includes committees committed to racial justice, immigrants’ rights, the environment, and education.
