LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Nationally renowned civil rights attorney Ben Crump brings his expertise and experience to a role as producer to the new documentary “How to Sue the Klan.” The film, which will be featured at the Pan African Film Festival on Feb. 10, features the heroic efforts of five Black women who fought the Ku Klux Klan in a landmark 1982 civil trial and emerged victorious. After surviving a racially-motivated mass shooting on the streets of Chattanooga, the women invoked the little-known Civil War-era Ku Klux Klan Act to win their case, a strategy that still serves as a model in the fight against racial violence today.
“How to Sue the Klan” is a call to action for attorneys and advocates to focus on civil rights and use the Ku Klux Klan Act as a tool to fight for justice. The film was directed by Emmy®-nominated filmmaker and Chattanooga resident John Beder.
