Criminal justice reform/#BLM/racial justice award winners Assemblymember Ash Kalra, San Francisco Public Defender Mano Raju, & National Action Network speaker Dr. Tecoy Porter

SACRAMENTO, CA, November 01, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — “The Racial Justice Act is landmark legislation and making it retroactive was critical…a promise to not leave behind those with past convictions tainted by systemic racism bias, both explicit and implicit,” stated Elected Official Award winner Assemblymember (ASM) Ash Kalra, author of the groundbreaking Racial Justice Act (“RJA”), at the Vanguard Justice Awards Gala Sacramento Oct. 13, 2022, https://www.davisvanguard.org/2022/10/vanguard-justice-awards/). The gala began with a showing of the exclusive trailer for Meleninum Dark Ghost Stories (https://youtube.com/channel/UCMxEACU4H–sPse4HNEyUhw), which debuted to the capacity crowd.

The film, inspired by true stories of the struggle against the everyday injustices, highlights mostly colored people who are targeted, profiled, and even sentenced to death by racial bias on the streets, as well as inside courtrooms. The debut film of USC film intensive student Sanjana Jon Rebecca Abraham (@SanjanaJon), is a gripping adaptation of the critically acclaimed short play by AJ Alexander (Playwrights Project Home https://www.playwrightsproject.org/ – Echo yard, R.J. Donovan). This highly stylized film captures the glorification and consequences of xenophobia fueled American eugenics, Jim Crow laws, segregation, and nazi – white supremacy ideologies that are currently feeding anti-immigrant sentiments, mass shootings, and a slavery infused prison-based industry complex. It features real events and people, including current Los Angeles Chargers player Jason Moore, #BLM Founders, Pastor Edgar Boyd (L.A.’s 148 yr old First African Methodist Episcopol Church), ASM Ash Kalra, LADA George Gascon, parolees, and exonerees. Alongside new talent, the film features the mesmerizing original soundtrack by @Avvakend.
