Red Tails – HD Movie Trailer

****THIS IS AN ECSTATIC FRESHNESS MUST SEE****

 

It’s 1944, World War II rages and the fate of the free world hangs in the balance. Meanwhile the black pilots of the experimental Tuskegee training program are courageously waging two wars at once — one against enemies overseas, and the other against discrimination within the military and back home. Racial prejudices have long-held ace airman Martin “Easy” Julian (Nate Parker) and his black pilots back at base — leaving them with little to do but further hone their flying skills — while their white counterparts are shipped out to combat after a mere three months of training. Mistakenly deemed inferior and assigned only second-rate planes and missions, the pilots of Tuskegee have mastered the skies with ease but have not been granted the opportunity to truly spread their wings. Until now…

J is for Junkie [Full Length Documentary]

Greedmont TV presents a documentary by Corey Davis on a group of crack addicts in Atlanta, GA who live outside in a small cove behind a Texaco gas station, infamously dubbed as the “Living Room”. They share their stories and tell what it’s like to battle with a deadly addiction to crack-cocaine.

“Growing up I never had a father, because he was out running the streets getting high… Right around the time I was born, the mid 80′s, African-American communities across the country was struck by the crack epidemic. Which robbed us our prideful culture and instantly perverted it into a counter-culture where playgrounds became warzones and families were destroyed.” – Corey Davis
