The Address

In my review Documentary Film ‘The Address’ Recounts Lincoln’s Ideals for Independence, starts out “On November 19, 1863, Abraham Lincoln traveled to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania to dedicate a cemetery at the site of the bloodiest battle of the Civil War. The President kept his remarks to a mere two minutes, paling in length to that of the relatively long-winded Edward Everett, a former Secretary of State whose keynote speech lasted a couple hours.”

I also had a great interview with Ken Burns.

Cowgirls ‘N Angels 2: Dakota’s Summer

I noted this film in May 2-12. It is an uplifting road flick about a rebellious tomboy, played by Bailee Madison, who is looking for her long-lost father. Instead, she finds herself adopted by a team of female rodeo trick riders. The cast includes James Cromwell, Alicia Witt and Frankie Faison.

Cowgirls ‘N Angels 2 is rated PG for mature themes and mild epithets.

Sadly, Lloyd Kam Williams passed away in 2019, leaving behind a huge body of work focused on America’s black entertainment community. We were as sad to hear of his passing as we were overjoyed to have him as part of our team.
