I am a Man from Memphis

I AM A MAN seeks to heighten awareness of the contributions made by citizens of our city whose courage and determination boldly changed history, and whose character sits at the heart of the place we call home. It is made in Memphis by an all-Memphis team. The idea came from an April 2008 commemoration held for the sanitation workers by the Memphis Convention and Visitors Bureau at Memphis City Hall. What started as a simple effort to document the day through short oral-history interviews soon became a full-fledged project to shine light on an infrequently discussed aspect of the Civil Rights Movement – and the qualities of those who shaped it —through a documentary short.
