Almost Cured is an award-winning documentary screened at 15 different movie festivals. The film is about some historic events in the small, southern Appalachian town in North Carolina that my family lived in for 12 years. 

SYNOPSIS: After the first touchdown, the crowd was a little less racist, and after the second touchdown, they were Almost Cured”. Almost Cured is an honest, personalized account about racial integration in a small North Carolina Appalachian community in the midst of the U.S. Civil Rights Movement in 1963. Against a distressing backdrop of the South in tumultuous upheaval with widespread protests, bombings, deaths, and thousands of arrests, the teenage African-American players on the newly-integrated high school football team have the “weight of the world on their shoulders” as the team and community navigate to the championship game. Told through firsthand recollections and archival media, this heartfelt and revealing 30-minute documentary acknowledges that although we were and still are just ‘Almost Cured’, there is hope if we focus on what unites us.
