A tribute to Ida B. Wells-Barnett and Assata Shakur on their birthdays. The main character in our film, When We Free, is named Ida and is played by a young woman in our community named Assata.
Julia has been composing music inspired by the words of Ida B. Wells-Barnett and Assata Shakur. Julia decided to share a melody as an invitation to our premiere which is a meditation on faith and liberation.
