Rita bo brown is a white, working-class butch from rural Oregon who became known as “The Gentleman Bank Robber” for combining her butch style of dress with a polite way of demanding funds from bank tellers. Part of the George Jackson Brigade, a revolutionary prison abolitionist group operating in the Pacific Northwest in the 1970s, brown helped fund operations through her bank-robbing activities. Weaving life in present-day Oakland, where brown now resides, with retelling of events, interviews with collaborators, and archival materials, Perini weaves together a touching look at a woman who has led a life committed to activism while maintaining a delightful sense of humor and humanity.
