2014 Symposium Spotlight: Kate Medley and Counter Histories Series

Today, we caught up with Kate Medley—a documentarian of food culture and the series director of Counter Histories—about her vision for the series.

“Our mission for the Counter Histories film series is to document the great impact that lunch counter sit-ins had during the Civil Rights Movement. In reflecting the past, we also hope to demonstrate the present-day relevance of these stories,” said Kate.
