The cast of the movie “Red Tails” celebrated at the New York Premiere on Jan 10th.
Black activist Judge Kevin Ross, Michael Ajakwe, Najee Ali and several others support the cast and urge people to see the movie in what the are calling “Occupy Red Tails”.
They are petitioning Americans to recognize those who fought to maintain American freedoms and privileges.
Film maker Lucas has been trying to tell this story for over 23 years but Hollywood wasn’t having it. So decided to tell the story using $90 million of his own money to make and market the film.
Through “Occupy Red Tails,” the activists goal is to make a statement to industry big wigs that people are interested in real drama, real stories, stories about Black America.
