American Violet

A very important film is opening on April 17 (in select theatres, as they say).

American Violet (official film site) is based on the true story of one of those horribly destructive and racist drug war situations involving a snitch and the arrests of dozens of African-Americans in Hearne, Texas who often had no recourse but to plead guilty, even when they were innocent. One young black single mother had the courage to maintain her innocence and finally won, bringing to light the corruption involved in the drug war.
The movie has a top-notch cast (including Alfre Woodard, Charles Dutton, and Will Patton).
Spread the word and support the film if you can.
