As the final film in its Fall Film Series The Wright Museum presents Taking Root: The Vision of Waangari Maathai, which tells the dramatic story of the late Kenyan Nobel Peace Prize Laureate whose simple act of planting trees grew into a nationwide movement to safeguard the environment, protect human rights, and defend democracy — a movement for which this charismatic woman became an iconic inspiration.  To learn more about the film visit or to view the trailer.
