The insightful documentary has the support of many prominent African Americans, including writer, director and actor Tyler Perry, National Urban League President and CEO Marc Morial, and many other entertainment, civic and spiritual leaders. Produced by filmmaker Elvin Ross, the film is also co-executive produced by New Bern's very own prominent Atlanta physician, Dr. Nathaniel Johnson and Berry Bryant. The film has been widely supported by academia at influential institutions including Harvard University, Morehouse College, Wayne State University and Northeastern University. Dr. Johnson explains, "It is with great honor that we bring this documentary home to New Bern. I am excited to share not just an important piece of history but the makings of a powerful movement!"
