SALUTES I'M CHARLIE WALKER
"The San Francisco Black Film Festival commends the Director Patrick Giles, the Cast members and the producers of "I'm Charlie Walker" and of course Charlie Walker, one of our neighbors, the subject of the film," said Cree Ray, SFBFF Festival Director.
"I'm Charlie Walker " is just the reason that film festivals like ours exist to broaden the narrative about the African Diaspora. We are so pleased and honored that "I'm Charlie Walker" has a memorial tribute to my father, Kali O'Ray."
"I'm Charlie Walker," the incredible true story of one courageous and resourceful man's determination to overcome racial prejudices in 1970's San Francisco, I'm Charlie Walker is a captivating tale of ingenuity amid overwhelming obstacles.
