WHILE I BREATHE, I HOPE
Directed by Emily Harrold
Charming and eloquent, Bakari Sellers has you at hello. The youngest black man to be elected to South Carolina legislature, he is now running for Lt. Governor. Witness the victories and defeats, as well as the insidious racism that continues to plague the South, and how Sellers handles it with grace. This is one man’s effort to make a difference in a culture where many are clinging to the past while others continue to suffer from it.
