      "American Violet" is Coming Soon!

      This could be something powerful, please check the trailer out, it's coming to "select cities" soon: AMERICAN VIOLET

      American Violet, released by Samuel Goldwyn Films and produced by Uncommon Productions, tells the heart- wrenching true story of Dee Roberts (played by critically hailed newcomer Nicole Beharie), a 24 year old African-American single mother of four who is wrongfully swept up in a drug raid. Despite the urgings of her mother (Academy Award nominee Alfre Woodard), and with her freedom and the custody of her children at stake, she chooses to fight the powerful corrupt district attorney (Academy Award nominee Michael O'Keefe) and the unyielding criminal justice system he represents. Joined in an unlikely alliance with an ACLU attorney (TIm Blake Nelson) and former narcotics officer (Will Patten), Dee risks everything in a battle that forever changes her life, and the justice system.
      "We must continue to move forward and do everything we can to outlaw legal lynching in America. We must continue to stand together in unity and to demand a moratorium on all executions. You must stay strong. You must continue to hold your heads up, and to be there. We will prevail. Keep marching Black people. They are killing me tonight. They are murdering me tonight." -- Excerpts of Last Words of Bro. Shaka Sankofa, an innocent man executed by the state of Texas, 6/22/00. www.myspace.com/nattyreb7

      Powerful story, hopefully this opens some eyes to what the "War on Drugs" is really about.
