Dr. MAYA ANGELOU WANTS THIS FILM TO GET MADE.
A movie should nourish you a little beyond its popcorn intake. In the stellar fundraiser at Dr. Maya Angelou’s Harlem home, Shirley Sherrod and Dr. Bob Zellner join spirits for the Civil Rights Film “Son of the South”.
Sunday night saw a merry and emotional evening of celebration and support for the upcoming production of the feature film, “Son of South”. The picture is based on Bob Zellner’s recently acclaimed memoir, “The wrong side of murder creek”, a spirited and emotional account of a life devoted to the Civil Rights Movement.
“I won’t be misused, overused or abused, but for what I believe is right, I will be of use.” states the ever-graceful Dr. Maya Angelou in the joyful colors that graces her living room. “In an era of such strong polarization, where hate is again being accepted as a tolerable response to our fellow human beings, this story needs to be told, this story needs to be heard.”
