We’re ending the year with a flourish! We celebrated Mamie’s 110th birthday in September and successfully matched our $10,000 gift.

We went back to Mississippi in October to film aerial shots and also to conduct a soil collection for John Hartfield, the lynching victim in Ellisville in 1919 who fled with her father and his collection is now enshrined in the Legacy Museum in Montgomery, Alabama (visit our photo gallery).

In November, we hired a new editor, Cassandra Chowdhury, who is awesome, and we finished a new fundraising promotional trailer which you can view here: https://vimeo.com/300405881.

We still have to raise our post production costs, but progress has been good and we’re anticipating completion of a rough cut of the film by the end of year. Many thanks to everyone that has contributed thus far. Have a blessed and peaceful holiday season.
