Comments from Our Supporters

"This film made me want to influence my grands to attend a historical black college! I will view the film with them."

‑ Tell Them We are Rising, February 2018

"The combination of the film screening and the panel discussion was powerful. I came away with a deeper understanding of the difficulties individual people face in homelessness."

‑ A Home of Their Own, February 2018

"I hadn’t contemplated how many homeless people have jobs. Also, I have seen the Road Home from the outside, but hadn’t contemplated how it would be to stay there. The film helped me visualize that scenario."

‑ A Home of Their Own, March 2018

"When the lights come up after the show has ended and there is not one dry eye in the house, you know you have done your job. What an incredibly moving and powerful film!"

‑ Homeless at the End, November 2017

"The topic of mental health and homelessness has been on my mind for a while and seeing the film just pushes me to get more involved."

‑ I Am another You, February 2018

"I don't normally watch TV, but this episode of Victoria was stunning enough to make me eager to power up the TV!"

‑ A Home of Their Own, March 2018

"This film inspired me to get an antenna to watch PBS! And to support local Black Lives Matter organizations."
