— KEN BURNS

Betty Reid Soskin is America’s oldest park ranger, famous for tirelessly shedding light on the forgotten history of racial segregation in California.

Back in the 1960s, Betty was also a singer/songwriter with a voice like Billie Holiday and the relevance of Nina Simone, but her songs haven’t been heard for 40 years.

Sign My Name to Freedom is a critically acclaimed memoir and a feature‍‍‍ documentary about Betty, her lost music and her experiences confronting housing segregation in the Bay Area of California.

"Betty Reid Soskin is a revelation;
her story, a window into a more complicated, heroic,
inclusive 20th century; her life a testament to affirmation in the face of adversity.
That she might also–amidst a set of astonishing careers
become a protector and interprete‍‍‍r
of our National Parks only makes her story tha‍‍‍t much more astonishing."
