"Love Separated in Life...Love Reunited in Honor" by San Francisco's Jackie Wright and Jack LiVolsi will be screened Saturday, February 2nd at the San Diego Black Film Festival.

"Given these days of racial derision that we are facing again in our country, festivals like the San Diego Black Film Festival are very significant since they give balance to the public discourse on race," said Jackie Wright, founder of Wright Enterprises. "Many thanks to Director Karen L. Willis, J.D. and team for providing a platform for films like ours that demonstrate the best in America. We removed a Fallen Vietnam Hero from a deteriorating segregated cemetery for reburial at Arlington National Cemetery with other military families giving honor at the ceremony."
