Clarksville, TN – Last weekend, our nation lost one of our greatest champions of justice and equity.
Hero. Icon. Dissenter. By the age of 87, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had developed a lengthy legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior’s rise to the nation’s highest court had been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans — until the release of this revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg’s life and career.
In honor of and in memory of Justice Ginsburg, The Law Offices of Turner & Phillips is presenting the critically-acclaimed documentary RBG at the Roxy Regional Theatre, free of charge, for one night only on Thursday, October 1st, 2020 at 7:00pm.
Rating: PG / Running time: 97 minutes / Release year: 2018 / Directors: Betsy West and Julie Cohen / Cast: Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Jane and James Ginsburg, Clara Spera, Gloria Steinem, Nina Totenberg, Lilly Ledbetter, Sharron Frontiero and Stephen Wiesenfeld, Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik, Bill Clinton, Ted Olson, Judge Harry Edwards, Senator Orrin Hatch, Eugene Scalia and Bryant Johnson / Licensing: RoCo Films Educational

Be sure to stop in before the movie during the First Thursday ArtWalk to visit our Peg Harvill Art Gallery, featuring the artwork of Peggy Bonnington. Peggy gravitates toward the unfettered creativity of unconsciously wandering lines, an intuitive stroke of color and impulsive shading.
She taught special education with Fort Campbell Schools, retiring in 2008, and is an active member of the Downtown Artists’ Co-op (DAC). Due to the movie, our gallery will only be open for the ArtWalk from 5:00pm to 6:30pm.
