*This short film screens before WOMEN IN BLUE*

A full 50 years before the Montgomery bus boycott, civil rights activist and entrepreneur Maggie Lena Walker led a city-wide boycott against segregated streetcars in Richmond, VA, and founded a newspaper, department store, and the St. Luke Penny Savings Bank, making her the first African American female bank president in the United States. UNLADYLIKE2020 brings her story of tenacity and wealth-building back to life through rare archival imagery, captivating original artwork and animation, and expert interviews.
