BLOOD DONE SIGN MY NAME

Directed by Jeb Stuart, Blood Done Sign My Name is an epic civil rights drama based on the acclaimed book of the same name by prize-winning author and fellow African American studies scholar, Timothy Tyson. Part autobiography, part history of the civil rights movement in the South, it recounts the murder of Henry Marrow, a 23 year-old black Vietnam veteran who was shot and beaten to death by a prominent white businessman and his grown sons. It also chronicles the reaction to Morrows killing by his cousin, Ben Chavis, who organized a peaceful, fifty-mile march to the states capitol, as well as a ten year old Tyson, who watched as his father, the pastor of the all-white Methodist church, tried to get his congregation to accept the inevitability of integration. The film stars Nate Parker (The Great Debaters and the forthcoming Tuskegee Airmen saga, Red Tails) as Chavis who, as you know, went on to become Executive Director and CEO of the NAACP, Afemo Omilami (Forest Gump), Lela Rochon (Waiting to Exhale), Omar Benson Miller (Miracle at St. Anna) and Darrin Dewitt Henson (Stomp the Yard).  http://www.blooddonesignmynamethemovie.com/
