Even though the outcome of the case was not good for Taylor, this case was a major victory for the formation of the civil rights movement because of the successful mobilization of activists across the nation. Given that the case was largely ignored by feminist organizations, with some suggesting Recy seduced the men, it created a sense of unity among black men and women who felt they truly were in this alone. The Recy Taylor case brought the building blocks of the Montgomery bus boycott together a decade early. Taylor lived in Abbeville with her family for two decades after the attack. She said that during those years she lived "in fear, and many white people in the town continued to treat her badly, even after her attackers left." She eventually moved to Florida, where she still lives.

In 2011, the Alabama House of Representatives apologized to Taylor on behalf of the state "for its failure to prosecute her attackers." State Representative Dexter Grimsley, along with Abbeville Mayor Ryan Blalock and Henry County Probate Judge JoAnn Smith, also apologized to Taylor for her treatment.Taylor received the apologies on Mother's Day in 2011, when she visited Rock Hill Holiness Church in Abbeville, the very church where she was kidnapped. "I felt good," she said. "That was a good day to present it to me. I wasn't expecting that." In 2011, Taylor visited the White House and attended a forum on Rosa Parks at the National Press Club

Hard one to post... Not so long ago, Recy Taylor, a Black woman from Abbeville, Alabama was walking home from the church on September 3, 1944, with her friend Fannie Daniel. A car with six armed white men pulled up next to them including US Army Private Herbert Lovett. Lovett accused Taylor of cutting "that white boy in Clopton this evening". This accusation was false. The seven men forced Taylor into the car at gunpoint and drove her to a patch of trees on the side of the road. They forced her to remove her clothes while Taylor begged to return home to her family- her husband and an infant child. Lovett ordered Taylor to lie down and to "act just like you do with your husband or I'll cut your damn throat". She was raped by six of the men, including Lovett. Taylor's kidnapping was reported immediately to the police by Daniel who identified the car as belonging to Hugo Wilson, who admitted to picking up Taylor and carrying her to the spot. Even though three eyewitnesses identified Wilson as the driver of the car, the police did not call in any of the men Wilson named as assailants, and Wilson was fined $250. While there was no record of the Taylors ever having been in trouble with the police, early reports falsely identified Recy as a prostitute. As a result of the gang rape being reported, the family's home was firebombed and Recy's father slept in a tree out front with a loaded rifle, to guard against further repercussions.The Black community of Abbeville was outraged and the event was reported to the NAACP who sent their best investigator and activist against sexual assaults on black women, Rosa Parks. Parks took the case back to Montgomery where she started to form a defense for Taylor. The trial took place on October 3, 1944, with an all-white, all-male jury. After five minutes of deliberation, the jury dismissed the case. In 2011, the Alabama House of Representatives apologized to Taylor on behalf of the state "for its failure to prosecute her attackers." Taylor received the apologies on Mother's Day in 2011. #recytaylor #queen #abbeville #alabama #herbertlovett #naacp #rosaparks #sexualassault #rape #allwhitejury #segregation #notsolongag #nsla

"The justice that Recy Taylor seeks shows the indomitable spirit of woman who survived the unimaginable, and used her voice to break her silence and lift the veil on the double edge sword of what it means to be black and a woman in this country."

So proud of our film team for the world premiere of our new documentary The Rape of Recy Taylor. Our director Nancy Buirski has created a powerful testament to the pursuit of justice for a violent crime that was covered up in 1944, and not apologized for by the State of Alabama until 2011. All this time, Recy Taylor’s brother Robert Corbitt hope that her story would become known and that his sister would receive a measure of justice. We are beyond honor d that Robert Corbitt was interviewed extensively to appear in our film, and that he and Yale historian @crystalnfeimster are here as part of our film delegation in @labiennale #womeninfilm #RecyTaylor #Venezia74 #labiennaledivenezia2017 #biennalecinema2017 #shespokeup #robertcorbitt
