2019 Programme Launch
Still Voices 2019 Programme Launch - Wilder & Gold
Edgecombe County is a predominantly African-American agricultural community in the eastern region of North Carolina. Like many communities in the historic South there are remnants of chattel slavery and monuments to civil rights struggles. It is on this stage that Edgecombe presents a small opening into the lives of Shaka Jackson, a new resident in the community, Ms. Doris Stith, President of the Community Enrichment Organization, Deacon Joyner, an elder in one of the oldest churches in the community.
Crystal Kayiza grew-up in Oklahoma and is now a Brooklyn-based documentary filmmaker and 2018 Sundance Ignite Fellow. Her work focuses on pursuing more nuanced and diverse storytelling about Black communities. She is a recipient of the 2017 Jacob Burns Film Center Woman Filmmaker Fellowship.
