“A fascinating and under-reported chapter in the never-ending struggle for justice on behalf of black men and women worldwide, as well as a scalding appraisal of Reagan-era racial attitudes at home and abroad.”

Justin Chang - LA TIMES

Co-Produced by Danny Glover and Belvie Rooks
(Q&A with filmmakers after screening)

The House on Coco Road is an intimate portrait of an activist and teacher who moves her children from Oakland, California to participate in the Grenada Revolution, only to find her family in harm’s way during the U.S. military invasion. Driven by his personal connection to the story, the filmmaker embarks on a search for historical and emotional truth, and, in the process, will confirm his mother’s place in American history. Features Fannie Haughton, Angela Davis, Fania Davis, Maurice Bishop, and Ronald Reagan. Editor: Jon Fine; Original Musical Score: MeShell Ndegeocello.
