The "CIVIL RIGHTS DIARIES" combines the box office appeal of the hit TV Show "Scandal" fueled by the growing curiosity about black history, weaponized by the Black Lives Matter Movement. Sprinkle in an original soundtrack that combines the most prolific genres of music, R&B, Pop and Rap . A Civil Rights icon known as “The Mother of the Movement” dies at the age of 101 years old. Her house was like a chapel and the kitchen a confessional booth where the sins from the era of the Civil Rights Movement were confessed over a pot of collard greens or a bowl of chitlins.

 

High profile dignitaries, scorned spouses, adulterers, murderers, pedophiles and more, hoped she would take their secrets to her grave. And she did. What they didn’t know was that she also kept a diary.
