Blood Done Sign My Name Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Based on the acclaimed novel by Timothy Tyson, BLOOD DONE SIGN MY NAME is an inspirational epic civil rights drama set in the 1970s that recounts the aftermath of the murder of Henry Marrow, a 23 year-old African American Vietnam veteran who was killed by a prominent white businessman and his grown sons in Oxford, North Carolina. Responding to the crime and the sham trial that followed, many young African American men take to the streets, engaging in riots and vandalism. However, Marrow’s cousin, Benjamin Chavis, decides that the best way to protest the government’s unwillingness to intercede is to organize a peaceful march on the state Capitol. What begins as a small group of Marrow’s outraged friends and relatives soon grows to become a crowd of thousands over a three-day, 50-mile trek to Raleigh.
