" As a filmmaker I have become aware of how important history is to our healing. Without a doubt education is the fundamental determinant of our health, and story-telling is a powerful weapon." said Producer, Denetra Hampton.
The tour is expected to hit museums and libraries throughout Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina. Audiences can expect a screening and then a panel discussion with producer, directors and some members of the casts.
