The Springfield Project is a charity based in the heart of Sparkhill, Birmingham that stems from St. Christopher’s Church. We provide a range of services and programmes which aim to combat poverty and help people to lead happy and healthy lives. We aim to help show God’s love in our community through practical service and action.
Film produced for The Springfield Project by Iconic Productions (http://www.iconictv.co.uk).
This short documentary was commissioned by Sandwell Community History and Archives Service. It tells the story of How D'you Know That? - an HLF funded project inspired by Malcolm X's historic visit to Smethwick in 1965. It was a moment defining time as Malcolm X was assassinated in the U.S just 9 days later.
This film features on an educational DVD distributed to local schools and community groups in Sandwell. It is also accompanied by a multi-camera recording of the specially commissioned play How D'you Know That? and Midland News bulletins from the period.
