Preservation Hall Goes for the Gold
Sep 1, 2020 | 7:30 pm
Wellfleet Preservation Hall, at 335 Main Street, is presenting an outdoor backyard screening of T-Rex: Her Fight for Gold on Tuesday, September 1st, at 7:30 p.m. The rain date is September 3rd. T-Rex, directed by Sue Jaye Johnson, is a documentary about boxer Claressa Shields. Growing up in Flint, Michigan, Shields bounced between homes, as her father was in prison and her mother struggled with addiction. Against all odds, at the age of only 17, she became one of the first women to box in the 2012 Olympics in London,where she won a gold medal, a feat she repeated at the 2016 Olympics in Rio. She then went pro, and, in 2019, became the undisputed women’s middle weight world champion.The screening is free, but preregistration at wellfleetpreservationhall.org is required.
