The Oklahoma Center for Poets and Writers at OSU-Tulsa will host special guest Anita Hill for a screening of the documentary, “Anita—Speaking Truth to Power,” on Thursday, Feb. 20 at 7 p.m. in the OSU-Tulsa Auditorium.

Hill, an Oklahoma native and graduate of OSU, was pushed into the national spotlight in 1991, when she accused U.S. Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment. The documentary takes a look back at the U.S. Senate confirmation hearings that captured the nation’s attention and examines how Hill’s testimony, which ignited a political firestorm about sexual harassment, race, power and politics, still resonates more than 20 years later.

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Freida Mock, who directed the documentary, will join Hill for the screening. Mock will interview Hill and both will answer questions from the audience.

For more information or to purchase tickets, call JoAnn Fennell at 918-272-6778.
