Director:
Gilda Ann Brasch

Description:

This is the story of one man, Desmond Meade, trying to get voting rights back for all. Filmed in Tampa, two days before the 2016 presidential election, this verité short covers a day-in-the-life of civil rights activist, Desmond Meade. It's Sunday, “Souls to the Polls,” the last day of early voting. Desmond is canvassing door to door. His mission? Assisting people in voting—something our “forefathers marched and died for.” What begins as an upbeat day of faith in our democratic process, ends with a heartbreaking realization. Jim Crow is not dead.
