By: Mann Robinson Productions
The movie "Justice on Trial was initially released in some AMC theaters in light of Black History Month back in February of 2020, but because of the COVID-19 has found its home in online streaming.
The movie follows two civil rights attorneys who sue the U.S. Department of Justice for reparations and damages on behalf of African American citizens in an innovative way.
"We're bringing back time travel witnesses, like Harriet Tubman, Medgar Evers, and Emmett Till in full character, to tell their stories to a modern-day courtroom," says Cooper.
"The goal is to get people to think about the lasting vestiges of slavery and the country's evolving racial issues, including police-involved shootings."
The film stars Dorian Wilson (The Parkers, The Steve Harvey Show, Tyler Perry's House of Payne) Todd Bridges (Different Strokes), and David Arquilla (Curvy Girls Rock, Gotti: Father and Son). Producers by Chad Lawson Cooper, Andrea Holmes Thompkins, and Burke Management. And directed by Mann Robinson of Mann Robinson Productions.
The timing of Justice On Trial couldn't be more aligned with the current racial climate. It truly spotlights the reality of our parents and ancestor's endurance of injustice, and inequality never ended; it just changed speed.
Justice on Trial will be streaming on July 4, 2020, via pay-per-stream online for $19.95.
