Taking Root: The Vision of Wangari Maathai

Friday, Apr 26, 2013 7:00p

The inspiring story of Kenyan Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Wangari Maathai is told in this 2008 documentary. Maathai's simple act of planting trees grew into Kenya's “Greenbelt Movement” - a globally recognize mobilization of women to rally against deforestation, poverty, and government corruption, eventually becoming a national political force that helped to bring down Kenya's 24-year dictatorship.
