Written, Directed and Produced by award-winning Brazilian filmmaker Débora Souza Silva, For Our Children revisits a tragic 2017 police brutality case in Troy, Alabama, which, notably, is the birthplace of the late great Rep. John Lewis. At the heart of its story are two mothers, Reverend Wanda Johnson in Oakland, CA (Mother to Oscar Grant) and Angela Williams, who are joined together by grief and bonded in sisterhood over their shared pursuit of justice for the violence inflicted against their sons.
