About the Event:

Local author and filmmaker Chris Bournea’s Lady Wrestler uncovers the forgotten stories of Babs Wingo, Marva Scott, Ethel Johnson, and Ramona Isbell—African American women from Columbus who blazed a trail in the world of professional wrestling in the 1950s and 60s. Before civil rights legislation and the women’s rights movement, these athletes braved racism and sexism to succeed in a white, male-dominated profession. (82 mins., DCP)
