Today I will be participating in the Sista-toSista visiting team going to Central California Women's Facility in Chowchilla, California, which means I will be on the road at 6 AM, so we are going on a bit earlier and rebroadcasting a couple of popular shows with one new interview. On the occation of Mrs. Rosa Parks's anniversary of her passing October 24, we rebraodcast an interview with biographer Dr. Jeanne Theoharis, whose The Rebellious Life of Mrs, Rosa Parks dispells myths as it enlightens audiences to a truer picture of this phonomenal woman. We close with an interview with Roger Ross Williams, the director, God Loves Uganda, another wonderful selection at the 2013 UNAFF which continues through Sunday, October 27, 2013. God Loves Uganda opens theatrically Nov. 1 in San Francisco at the Roxie Theatre. Roger Ross Williams directed and produced Music by Prudence, winner of the 2010 Academy Award for documentary short subject. He is the first African American to win an Oscar for directing and producing a film. He has produced and directed dozens of hours of non-fiction programming for major television networks and cable channels. Williams has won numerous awards for his work. Currently, Williams has several projects in development, including a feature narrative film about the African American Baptist church titled Black Sheep. Visit http://www.unaff.org/2013/f_god.html
