As 1 ANGRY BLACK MAN opens, viewers meet Mike Anderson (Keith Stone), a graduating senior at an idyllic Maine liberal arts college who's been arrested for a crime he didn't commit. After his release, he joins his classmates and his professor, Carla (Daphne Danielle), for an African American literature class. There, during a discussion on writers like James Baldwin, August Wilson, and Zora Neale Hurston, Mike and his fellow students engage in a passionate, hour-plus-long conversation that touches on pain points both modern and venerable: how trauma lingers in your life, the politics of oppression, and how the humanity and honesty in the literature they're reading relates to their own joy and pain.
1 Angry Black Man is co-produced by Soulidifly Productions and Align Pictures. Soulidifly Productions is a Richmond-based media company founded by retired Verizon Communications executive and film producer BK Fulton in 2017.
