Is there a weapon to combat racial profiling and poor police-civilian relations in communities of color?

According to filmmakers A.J. Ali and Errol Webber Jr.  that weapon is L.O.V.E.

The documentary Walking While Black: L.O.V.E. is the Answer was shown on Saturday, February 10, 2018, in Somsen Hall- Harriet Johnson Auditorium  on Winona State’s campus as part of the Frozen River Film Festival.

Here is how FRFF described the film:  “Endorsed by Baltimore Mayor, Catherine E. Pugh, and lauded by law enforcement professionals across the country, the new documentary film WALKING WHILE BLACK: L.O.V.E. Is The Answer tackles the critical issue of racial profiling, and works to bridge the painful gap between peace officers and the communities they serve. L.O.V.E. is an acronym for Learn about your community, Open your heart, Volunteer yourself to be part of the solution, and Empower others.”

The film was named as the Best Documentary and Audience Favorite at the Garifuna Film Festival in 2017.

Producer and Director of Photography, Errol Webber, was in attendance at the film’s showing.

Webber was also the cinematographer of the Oscar-winning Music by Prudence and Sundance-winning American Promise.

Joseph Costello and Siena Kuehn of Cotter Teen Press spoke to  Webber at FRFF.
