Raynor Memorial Libraries will host a film screening of “Revolution of the Heart: The Dorothy Day Story” on Monday, March 23, from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. in its Beaumier Suites (lower level of Raynor).
The film profiles one of the most extraordinary and courageous women in American history. Day was co-founder (along with Peter Maurin) of the Catholic Worker Movement that began as a newspaper to expose rampant injustices during the Great Depression. It soon expanded to become a network of houses of hospitality to welcome the poor and destitute.
The film includes rare archival photographs and film footage—some of which came from Marquette’s own Dorothy Day archives—plus interviews with actor/activist Martin Sheen, public theologian Cornel West, popular author Joan Chittister, Jim Wallis of Sojourners and many others.
