AFS Presents: RAISE HELL: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF MOLLY IVINS

August 30 @ 5:15 pm - 6:45 pm

$9

RAISE HELL is the story of Molly Ivins, the political columnist and Texas maverick that spoke truth to power and gave voice to those that had none. The first woman to co-edit The Texas Observer, she took on the good ol’ boys, cracking wise and drinking them under the table. At the height of her popularity 400 newspapers carried her column. She railed against “Big Bidness” in government, and often said, “Texas is the national laboratory for bad gub’ment.” Prescient words as the “Texification” of U.S. politics: anti-intellectualism, public religiosity and machismo is here. With her death in 2007, the nation lost a freedom fighter that charged us to continue to Raise Hell.(SXSW)
