"The Six Triple Eight" Chattanooga Premiere
Time & Location
About the Event
The 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion trained in Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia before shipping out in February, 1945, to serve in Birmingham, England and Paris, France. Their task? Clear 17 million pieces of backlogged mail to American G.I.'s serving in Europe during World War II. "The Six Triple Eight," an award-winning documentary from Lincoln Penny Films, tells the story of 855 extraordinary women who fought racism, sexism, both at home and abroad, before completing their mission.
The screening is free and open to the public. A Q&A with the film's producer, James Theres, will take place immediately following the film.
Sponsored by the 6th Cavalry Museum, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Groove 93 and Power 94 FM.
