*/CARRY IT FORWARD/* stars activist legend *Angela Davis* as the 
program's narrator, *Eve Ensler* (/The Vagina Monologues/ and /Emotional 
Creature/) portraying Ethel Rosenberg, and *Cotter Smith* as Julius 
Rosenberg. The production uses dramatic readings, acted vignettes, 
poetry, music, and historical photos to dramatize the last four days of 
the Rosenbergs’ lives through their prison letters and Robby and Michael 
Meeropol’s firsthand accounts.

The film also tells the stories of present-day activist families the 
Rosenberg Fund for Children assists (including the family of Russell 
Maroon Shoatz), and spotlights current movements for *peace, 
environmental justice, immigrants' rights, civil liberties and other 
progressive struggles from Idle No More and Stop, Stop and Frisk, to the 
fight to free all political prisoners.*
