Filmed in Tampa, this verité short covers a day-in-the-life of civil rights activist and former felon, Desmond Meade. 

It's Sunday, “Souls to the Polls,” the last day of early voting. 

Desmond is canvasing door-to-door. His mission? Assisting people in voting - something our "forefathers marched and died for.” 

What begins as an upbeat day of faith in our democratic process, ends with a heartbreaking realization. Jim Crow is not dead. 

The screening will be followed by a special live panel discussion to discuss voter suppression and the future of democracy in the US. 

Panelists include the documentary filmmaker, Gilda Ann Brasch; activist for Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, Marquis McKenzie; and Chukundi Salisbury from Urban Vote.
