When arts patron Penny Winton approached J.D. Steele after George Floyd’s death and suggested he make a documentary about racism, the longtime Minneapolis music man wasn’t sure he was a filmmaker.

But Steele decided to give it a try, interviewing three elder Black Minnesota activists about systemic racism. And since he had a film crew, he decided to interview his mother for posterity, too.

Good for J.D. Steele. I’ll have to watch this.
