Honoring Mrs. Rosa Parks

Photo: Donated by Corbis-Bettmann

 

In Memorium, Rosa Parks (1913-2005)

 

I was asked by The Rosa Parks Organization to edit her homegoing service. In the next couple of days I'll have 7 hours worth of video footage to look at and must condensed it to under an hour. I am extremely honored for the opportunity and will be working on it with my producer associate Pearl Devers. Pearl is also producing my first feature film (A Taste of Us) with me in which we are in pre-production for now.

 

Mrs. Dever worked in the late 1990s as Mrs. Parks media representative, as a state director for her youth programs that educated young people about the struggles of the civil-rights movement and, later, as co-producer of an award-winning 2002 movie on Parks' life. "The Rosa Parks Story" starred Angela Bassett and Cicely Tyson.

 

I sure miss Flickr. Haven't uploaded anything in over a week. That's a lifetime for me. Will try and snap some things over the weekend. I miss you guys too! Stay safe and much blessings to you this holiday season...
