Walking With FUREE

Post 9/11, Wanda Imasuen, a Harlem raised believer in the American Dream, found herself jobless and going to the welfare office. The humiliation of her treatment and the persistent efforts of the women at FUREE (Families United for Racial and Economic Equality), led Wanda to become an activist and speaker and to recruit other women to empower themselves.

Reviews
"Enhances our portrait of feminism. The scope of contemporary women's activism is sometimes confined to workplace equity, reproductive rights and sexual harrasment. Missing in this narrative are grassroots efforts by poor women. WALKING WITH FUREE offers an alternative view of women's political engagement."
- Premilla Nadasen, Films for the Feminist Classroom
