Jubilee in the Rear View Mirror is a comedy-drama about two men of the same age but different color who must share a jail cell in the rural South at the height of the civil rights movement.  During Freedom Summer (1964), a young black civil rights worker from the North finds himself incarcerated in a small Mississippi town with a white racist.  At first, the white man acts as if his cell-mate has an infectious disease and uses toilet paper to divide the cell into two halves, making sure the lone toilet is on his side.  But he gradually gains respect for the black man, whose demeanor, sophistication, and openness in sharing his life experiences gradually breaks down the barriers that initially separated them.  This is a compelling story that uniquely reveals the power of the human spirit and the ability of the individual to triumph over inequities in society.

The companion piece is  My Mama Says written and directed by Michael Rex.

A little girl finds her grandmother's photo album. While Calli recognizes some of the people in the pictures, she doesn't know who all of them are, so she asks her mother. Celeste looks through the photos with her daughter, looking at the women from the American Civil Rights movement - the women who her mother marched with, protested with, suffered with, and made a difference with. These women who changed America. These women who had something to say. Eight women come to life through their most famous words. This is what My Mama Says.
