          Under the Kudzu (2012) traces the history of two Rosenwald schools in Pender County, NC. These were historic schools that southern African American communites helped to built during the segregation era with help from the Julius Rosenwald Fund. The film features the Canetuck Rosenwald school, a two-room school established in 1922, and the Pender County Training School, a larger multi-building campus started in 1917. The dedication of faculty and the closeness of the community are highlighted as viewers come to understand the sacrifices that African American communities made for education. This film won the 2012 Director's Choice Award at the Cape Fear Independent Fim Festival and screened at the 2012 NTHP Rosenwald school conference at Tuskegee University as well as many other venues.

                "Carrie Mae: An American Life" (2014, 60 min.) is the story of Carrie Mae Sharpless Newkirk, born in 1923 in Duplin County, one of fifteen children in a sharecropping family. She attended the Chinquapin Colored School, a Rosenwald school, and dreamed of becoming a teacher. She thought her dream was impossible after her father died when she was in high school. However, her principal obtained a work scholarship for her to attend Kittrell College. From there, she went on to earn her degree from Elizabeth City State Teachers' College. Carrie Mae taught in Pender County's segregated schools, then in 1966 she became one of the first African American teachers to integrate a white faculty. Her life reflects the major shifts in southern education from the 1920s to the 1970s, as well as her 40+ year commitment to service through teaching. As she often said, "Children know when you love them." This film is made possible in part by the generous support of the Middle Road Foundation.
