THANK YOU to Hubert Brandon who shared details about Voices of the Hill at the Cleveland Film Festival.
I’m EXCITED THE VOICES OF THE HILL has been selected to be screened at Greater Cleveland Urban Film Festival. Voices of the Hill” is a community oral history documentary that chronicles the history of Twinsburg Heights, a historically black segregated suburb in Northeast Ohio. This documentary is told through the eyes of area youth as they research, film, and interview elders in their community in order to learn and preserve a history before it is lost to dying industries, foreclosures, and gentrification. Students learn first-hand, the importance of banning together, self-advocacy, civic engagement and family as they capture the stories of their elders and document a history to bring their fractured community together.

While she was trending at first for all of the wrong reasons (i.e. body-shaming trolls who did nothing but criticize her figure), the rest of the Twitter community came to her rescue and highlighted how talented she is.
“Gymastics is a sport for brave people,” she said in an interview with Americas Now on CCTV last month. “You need to be dedicated, have a strong will, and lots of persistency. I won’t stop until I have reached my goals.”
