Emanuel, is a MUST SEE Movie,  it’s only in theaters for two nights 6-17 and 6-19, Get Up and Go  See it!

I had the opportunity to pre-screen Emanuel, produced by Stephen Curry, Viola Davis, and Mariska Margitay. Let me tell you, this documentary truly reveals where we are as far as race relations in this country.  The passion and determination to tell this story by the producers are to be commended as this movie was not created with profits in mind, in fact, all the producers proceeds from Emanuel will go to the victims’ families and the survivors. check out Mariska interviewing Viola about her passion for this story to be told:


Here is an overview you can expect to view:

National headlines blazed the story: Churchgoers Gunned Down During Prayer Service in Charleston, South Carolina. After a 21-year-old white supremacist opened fire in the church, nine African Americans lay dead—leaving their families and the nation to grapple with this senseless act of terror.

Forty-eight hours later, in the midst of unspeakable grief and suffering, the families of the Emanuel Nine stood in court facing the killer … and offered words of forgiveness. Their demonstration of grace ushered the way for hope and healing across a city and the nation.

It’s the story that rocked a city and a nation as it happened … and in the days that followed. Marking the fourth anniversary of the event, executive producers Stephen Curry and Viola Davis, co-producer Mariska Hargitay, and director Brian Ivie (The Drop Box) present EMANUEL. The documentary powerfully weaves the history of race relations in Charleston, the significance and impact of Mother Emanuel Church, and the hope that somehow emerges in the aftermath.

Featuring intimate interviews with survivors and family members, EMANUEL is a poignant story of justice and faith, love and hate, examining the healing power of forgiveness. Marking the fourth anniversary, EMANUEL will be in movie theaters across the country for two nights only: June 17 and 19.
