DAWN: A CHARLESTON LEGEND, 34min., USA

Dawn Langley Simmons was one of the first transgender and interracial marriage pioneers. Dawn’s story was one in which mystery and legend swirled, even to this day. She was the author of more than 20 books. She was the adopted daughter of famed actress, Dame Margaret Rutherford and designated heir to the fortune of painter Isabel Whitney. She lived in a grand mansion filled with antiques and a hidden garden, but ultimately lost it all in order to become who she was in side; a woman, wife and mother.
