    This is the first trailer for "The Light of Freedom" - A KICKS Flicks Production It is the year 1861 and President Lincoln has called for 75,000 men to join the Union Army. As the Civil War begins, another battle has been raging for decades. It is the fight for freedom waged by the Underground Railroad. William Hanby has been a station master on the Underground Railroad for many years. He breaks the law of the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, as he puts himself and his family in great danger to help runaway slaves reach freedom. Difficulty arises when a new bounty hunter arrives in the area, determined to make money by returning runaway slaves to their masters. The situation is further complicated when Hanby’s primary railroad conductor joins the Union Army to fight in the war. Meanwhile, further south along the Ohio River, at the border of the slave state of Kentucky and the free state of Ohio, the frontline of the fight for freedom rages. Jackson Cumberland, a free black man, risks his life regularly to help runaway slaves make it across the river. Samuel Woodson, a slave rescued by Jackson, yearns to be re-united with his sister, still caught on the other side of the river. Your family will be inspired by the life of William Hanby, a real life historical hero, and his family. You will be moved by the stories of runaway slaves longing to be re-united with their families, and those risking their lives to save them. You will be captivated as you follow the Union Army’s 14th OVI in their fight against the Confederate Army in Virginia. This inspirational family film by KICKS Flicks will both educate and entertain as it encourages you to stand for the freedom of every person.

              This is Part 1 of 2. Part 2 is here: http://vimeo.com/19819059 In Summer 2010, we biked from New Orleans, Louisiana to Owen Sound, Ontario, mostly along the Underground Railroad Route. The trip was 2177 miles, took 36 days, and had its fair share of both triumph and tragedy. This movie acts as a travelogue of our trip, detailing the people, places, and events along the way. We started with four riders, gained a few and were up to six people at one point, but ended with only three. Heat, hills, dog attacks, logging trucks, and other obstacles were overcome. A scandalous volume of soda and peanut butter and jelly burritos were consumed.

                This summary video shows footage from the historic Price of Life Invitational conducted by R. York Moore at the Ohio State University in April, 2010. The purpose of the Ohio State Price of Life Invitational Campaign was to bring together leaders from the university, church community, legal and business arena and political realm with those local, national, and international organizations on the front lines in the battle against human trafficking in order to raise money, awareness, and advocates amongst faculty and students at the largest college campus in America. Bringing the voices and talents from these diverse networks will help us stop the horrors of modern day slavery and sexual exploitation.Through this unique lens of advocacy, networking, and education, we hope also to help those exploited as modern day slaves by raising money and awareness at the Ohio State University.
