100 Years from Mississippi, and fundraiser for India

Molly contributed animations for the recently released film 100 Years from Mississippi, Best Documentary winner in the Harlem International Film Festival. 

“Mamie Lang Kirkland still remembers the night in 1915 when panic filled her home in Ellisville, Mississippi. Her family was forced to flee in darkness from a growing mob of men determined to lynch her father and his friend. Mamie’s family escaped, but her father’s friend, John Hartfield, did not. He suffered one of the most horrific lynchings of the era.

Mamie vowed to never return to Mississippi – until now. After one hundred years, Mamie’s youngest child, filmmaker, Tarabu Betserai Kirkland, takes his mother back to Ellisville to tell her story, honor those who succumbed to the terror of racial violence, and give testimony to the courage and hope epitomized by many of her generation.”

100 Years From Mississippi is now in film festivals

We also wanted to bring to your attention that India is currently dealing with a massive wave of new COVID19 cases, and is struggling to provide adequate care to patients.

In an effort to help, 100% of sales from each personalized copy of Drawing Blood and Brothers of the Gun bought from the shop will be donated toward fundraisers focusing on providing oxygen and medical care in India.

We’ve already donated over $2,000.00 and will continue to donate all of this week.

Each book contains a hand drawn, one-of-a-kind illustration by Molly (spoiler – may contain cats!).  And now until May 23rd, if you purchase one of Molly’s books from the shop, you can also get 20% off the print of your choice with code INDIA20
