Here is the synopsis for Son of the South.
A grandson of a Klansman comes of age during the early 60’s in the deep south and eventually joins the Civil Rights Movement. Based on Bob Zellner’s autobiography “The Wrong Side of Murder Creek”.
The films stars Lucas Till, Lex Scott Davis, Lucy Hale, Cedric The Entertainer, and Julia Ormond. Spike Lee serves as executive producer. It is produced by Colin Bates, Stan Erdreich, Bill Black, and Eve Pommerance.
This looks like an inspiring film that will have us all looking in the mirror to see what we can do for positive change in our country no matter what race we are. Often times we don’t hear about people who stood up for African Americans despite the pressure of their friends and families to ignore the fight for justice. It’s interesting that a topic like this is still relevant today in 2021.
