"A Good Man" Stirs Up International Dialogue for Black History Month, Lincoln's Birthday

Post-broadcast, the requests to screen A Good Man eveywhere from film festivals to universities, keep coming in.  A Good Man is a window into the creative process and, indeed, the creative crisis of one of our nation’s most enduring, provocative artists as he explores what it means to be a good man, to be a free man, to be a citizen.  These topics are particularly pertinent during February, which is both Black History Month and the month of Lincoln's birthday.
