Selma, Alabama (first written in 2015) and set in 2020.
Given The Turmoil in Our Nation Today, This Story is a Must-Read.
Former Klansman and Alabama native David Earl Applewhite’s journey, on the rugged road to redemption, lasts fifty years. It ends in a way no one will see coming, with his atoning confrontation with demons of his own creation. "The Water Line" is a story for our time that shows the destructive effects of hate, and the healing power of love and forgiveness.
From the author: I offer my deepest and sincerest thanks to Ms. Cicely Tyson and Robert Duvall. Your immeasurable talent, body of work, and unique personal attributes served as exacting templates for this story’s principal characters: David Earl Applewhite and Sarah Davis.
Screenplay is complete, and was recognized at The Austin Film Festival not long ago.
