Mamie Reels Ellison and her niece Kim Renee Duhon are two fierce women fighting to protect their land as two members of the family are incarcerated for refusing to leave their homes, becoming two of the longest serving inmates for civil contempt in the USA. This documentary by Oscar-nominee Raoul Peck (I Am Not Your Negro) highlights the way the legal system is exploited to limit land ownership in the Black community and further contributing to the racial wealth gap.
