The Humanize My Hoodie Family will be showcasing its documentary in Rochester, MN. This 30 minute documentary captures the journey of two black men trying to survive in a world that doesn’t appreciate their Black skin. This biopic highlights the Jason’s and Andre's childhoods, adulthoods, and their Road to New York Fashion Week. The film is inspirational but also educational. Audiences will leave with a better understanding of how racism worked against these two but also highlight how extreme resilience helped them defy the immeasurable odds. In addition, there will be a Q & A following the screening with Andre' Wright and Jason Sole.
