Chenowith Fights Black Warrior's Curse
The book is a fictionalized account of violence amid the work of the civil rights movement in the Deep South in the 1950s and '60s as viewed from the prospective of a young white man and an African-American of the same age, both from Alabama. Both are changed by the riots and church bombings in Birmingham, "Bloody Sunday" in Selma and Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech at the Lincoln Memorial.
Chenowith will write the script. Most recently, he wrote and produced WWII romancer "Beautiful Dreamer," starring Brooke Langton and Colin Egglesfield.
