    I am the Line Producer/Production Coordinator of the film and as Mr. Kelly stated, this was an unforgettable experience and we were sponges to the history that was learned through this process. Many people don't know the complete story, and even more people don't know that it even happened. This project was not only a learning experience, but a life changing experience; from the people that were interviewed to the hard work put in to get us to this point. Michael Anthony has done a great job in keeping this film alive and pushing for this story to be told on a national level. Definitely a must see- from the artwork, to the live footage and first hand memories of the Uprising....LET THE REVOLUTION BE TELEVISED!!

    I was the Assistant Director of this project. It was an unforgettable experience. It's amazing how very little I knew about the details of the event but even more amazing how many people had no clue about this event occured. When we screened it the Film in Greensboro, NC, some patrons even left the film in tears... A must see Film!

    I participated in the documentary and feel it gives an accurate representation of the situation at that time and the circumstances surrounding the violence. I was in Junior high school in my hometown of Greensboro, NC back in 1969 and will never forget the hostility and misunderstanding that seem to take over my hometown. Seeing high school students physically mistreated made me become more keenly aware and proud of my Blackness to the point I started wearing a hugh Afro as soon as I got to Dudley High school.
