October 20, 2020
5:30 - 8:00 PM
Approved for 2.5 CLE credits
The documentary, Raise Hell: The Life and Times of Molly Ivins will be screened via Zoom. Raise Hell is about "Texas maverick Molly Ivins. Often compared to Mark Twain, she was one of the most courageous journalists of modern times, and also one of the funniest! Molly was a trailblazer for female journalists. At the height of her popularity, nearly 400 papers carried her column. She appeared on national television and radio, lectured all over the country and encouraged her constituents to raise hell and fight for freedom. A fighter against injustice until the very end, breast cancer took Ivins out of the game way too soon."
The film addresses, from Molly's perspective, bipartisan media coverage of various levels of government, political candidates and office holders. After the screening of the documentary, a panel of judges, community leaders, and legislators will discuss the intersection of the legal process and the media including Constitutional Rights, Women in the Law, and Reparations for Wrongful Convictions.
