Currently, in post-production is: Blueprint For My People, a short film that illuminates the African-American experience by lyrically interweaving spoken-word narration of Margaret Walker’s epic poem, “For My People” with contemporary images and rare 19th century cyanotypes (blue photographic prints known as “blueprints”); and My Battle with PD, a short film that visually brings to life the poignant words penned by disability activist, John M. Williams about living with Parkinson’s disease. Her feature documentary, Mary Lou Williams: The Lady Who Swings the Band, on this renowned yet unsung jazz genius, is currently available on Showtime and was broadcast nationally on public television in 2015.
