Hello Friends and Family,
On December 3, 2013 I launched this on line campaign to raise $7500 towards completing the documentary film, Chairman Jones—An Improbable Leader!
This is a true story of the desegregation of public schools in Northampton County, NC and the pivotal role, my father, James Henry Jones played as the first black school board chairman in the State. It is an actual account of a chapter of American History in that place at that time, told through the voices of those who lived it. It includes personal interviews with dozens of people throughout the State who witnessed his extraordinary leadership and these turbulent times.

The story is particularly relevant today as public education finds itself under attack and in decline. The documentary film records and preserves this important story.
As a part of your end of the year giving, please consider making a tax deductible gift (for U.S. donors) to this Campaign Today.  As a token of appreciation for your gift, the Campaign offers a limited number of perks.
