Norma Rae – Trailer

For my US History in Film project, I chose to do the 1979 film Norma Rae. The film bases its plot around the real life of Crystal Lee Sutton, a normal textile worker that gets heavily involved in the activities of a labor union. With the help of the biography of Sutton, and other primary and secondary sources, the historical accuracy of Norma Rae is able to be discovered.
