The mission of this film is to present and preserve Lester Young’s legacy by rediscovering and interpreting his life through the lens of American culture. To inform a new generation who knows little of this time and the musicians who played jazz on the front lines of a battlefield that still burns.
This film in production retells the creation of Swedish economist, Gunnar Myrdal’s groundbreaking study, An American Dilemma, and compares Myrdal’s discoveries and findings to the conditions of race relations and social equity in our society today.
This Sundance Grand Jury Prize nominee chronicles the life of civil rights activist Bayard Rustin, who, among many contributions to the cause, is best known for organizing the 1963 March on Washington, D.C., involving hundreds of thousands of people. But Rustin’s skin color wasn’t the only thing that reinforced the feeling that he was an outsider in America. He was also openly gay at a time when most gay men — particularly black men — remained in the closet.
A startling film about the role of race in the daily lives of white people. Designed as a gentle tool for the classroom, boardroom, and church basement, the film avoids blame, guilt, or “political correctnesss.”
