This month marks 41 years since the Supreme Court’s ruling in Roe v. Wade – a landmark decision that legalized abortion in the United States. But in Mississippi, the state’s only abortion clinic is struggling to keep its doors open.

The West Virginia University P.I. Reed School of Journalism is hosting award-winning photographer and multimedia producer Maisie Crow on Monday, Jan. 27 as she screens her documentary film, The Last Clinic, which documents the Jackson Women’s Health Organization’s fight to stay open despite a new law that could shut it down.

Crow will also meet students in their visual journalism classes. The screening will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Life Sciences Building, Room G11. It is free and open to the public.

Crow is a photographer and filmmaker based in Brooklyn, New York and Austin, Texas. She has worked with numerous publications and organizations including The Boston Globe, MediaStorm, The New York Times, ProPublica and Reel Peak Films. Crow has taught as an adjunct professor at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, CUNY and the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies.
