FULFILLING THE PROMISE
In 1964, two women stepped onto Winthrop University's campus and into history as the school's first African American students.
Fifty years later, Cynthia Plair Roddey and Delores Johnson Hurt shared their stories with me for this film about their experiences.
While it's ultimately a branded documentary, I approached the project as a journalist. I spent nearly two months researching, creating the film, then fact checking. Winthrop screened it at a fall gala commemorating the 50th anniversary of the school's integration.
I also established several partnerships to distribute the film, which resulted in its airing on South Carolina's PBS station and adoption into middle and high school lesson plans by more than half the state's school districts.
I received a Winthrop University Presidential Citation for my work on this project.
I wrote, directed, filmed, motion designed, edited, colored, sound designed, and mixed this film.
