Wednesdays in Mississippi Film Project

Cathee Weiss is a producer, along with director Marlene McCurtis and co-producer Joy Silverman and Dean Schram, of the documentary film, Wednesdays in Mississippi. Wednesdays in Mississippi tells the story of a few brave and forward thinking women who joined together to fight for justice during the summer of 1964. Wednesdays in Mississippi was the only civil rights project organized by women, for women.

Women of means came together, black and white, Christian and Jew, from the north into Mississippi…over 400 women in all, to diffuse the terror and ease the process of integration in Mississippi.
