DEEPLY ROOTED: John Coykendall’s Journey to Save Our Seeds and Stories - $25

John Coykendall is a renowned heirloom seed saver, a classically trained artist, and Master Gardener at Blackberry Farm, one of America's top resorts. He has spent half his life working to preserve the seeds and stories of a small Louisiana farming community.

Since 1973, he has made an annual pilgrimage to Louisiana to record the oral histories and growing techniques, recipes, and folktales of Louisiana farmers and gardeners in more than 80 beautifully illustrated journals. He has saved and safeguarded rare varieties of the crops they once grew and handed them back to the community they came from.

His work inspires us to reconnect with the land, with the seeds and growing expertise that our ancestors passed on to us, to grab hold and pass that legacy on to future generation - whitle there is still time.

A Documentary by Christina Melton.

Funding Provided in Part by CAMELLIA BRAND BEANS.

SIGNPOST TO FREEDOM: The 1953 Baton Rouge Bus Boycott - $25.00

A one hour documentary that recounts the circumstances and events that led to the nation's first large-scale boycott protesting segregation and then examines its impact on the evolution of grassroots civil rights activism across the country during the early years of America's Civil Rights Movement. Regardless of whether the Baton Rouge bus boycott is viewed as a success or failure, the boycott's impact on the larger civil rights movement is indisputable. Not only did the boycott provide proof that African Americans could take a brave, unified, and peaceful stand against segregation, it also brought to light a specific, yet fundamental inequity suffered by most black Southerners, paying the same bus fare as whites, but having to stand up over empty seats, simply because they were black. Music by Grammy-winning artist Chris Thomas King.
