I know it’s been a while, and I have a good explanation as to why:
This documentary is part 2 of The Queen City chronicles, and it’s entitled, The Queen City: Life’s Reward.
Two teens, Bakari and Trinity, enjoy a date at the Real African Art Gallery in Charlotte, NC. As they navigate the gallery, taking an interest in several sculptures and paintings, the owner, Cal Ganda, explains the significance of each piece. The teens receive a lesson on African history, culture, and more.
I’m still very much a rookie when it comes to writing and directing, but the knowledge I’ve gained about the industry so far continues to fuel my passion.
With a focus on Black youth, part 2 highlights the community work done by several phenomenal individuals in the city of Charlotte. It also features music from local talent, including YUNG Citizen, Howard McNair, and Tygah Scottt Productions.
The production team, Prestine Manderville Jr., Dan Hood, and Eric Eberhardt, helped me bring this project to life. And I’m forever grateful for their hard work.
I hope my community is inspired by the message in the film, and if you’d like to discuss any of its content, feel free to comment below.
Stay tuned for more.
Until Next Time…
