TERENCE BLANCHARD appears in HOME the new documentary by filmmaker NAIMAH FULLER. Terence's name is synonymous with great Jazz music. But by no means is that the sum total of who he is, or what his musical gifts are all about. Terence's musical discography contains a long list of movie scores, including the recently released George Lucas movie Red Tails. This spring his musical accomplishments will come full circle on Broadway with the opening of the new play Streetcar Named Desire. A native of New Orleans, Blanchard made his way north to New York City as a young aspiring musician. Terence is back home now, where he shared his migration story for the new documentary movie HOME about African Americans relocating to the South. Watch the Trailer and hear Terence talk about being back HOME in the most musical city on the planet.
Recording Artist JULIE DEXTER is one of the many great artists who are featured in the new documentary movie HOME. The British-born recording artist shares her story of choosing the South over New York and LA, to make Atlanta home base for her recording career. Julie's husband MICHAEL JOHNSON is a native of Atlanta. What is so amazing about this photograph of Julie and her family, is when I began production on the project, Julie's daughter Naimah (my namesake) was just a babe in her mother's arms. Julie is among an entire community of Black Brits who have opted to make the ATL HOME.

DJ Dramais one of HipHop's top producers who has joined the ranks of famous HipHop artists who have made the South their home. Most of the top names in the Southern Hip-Hop game can be found between Atlanta and Miami. Drama shares his story of moving from Philadelphia to Atlanta in the soon-to-be-released documentary movie HOME: The Great Migration Of The 21st Century. Similar to the Harlem Renaissance era during the Great Migration of the 20th century, when Harlem and Jazz was all the rage, the HipHop community is making a mark in the South and making Atlanta HOME.
the quintessential Renaissance Man. Oas I affectionately like to call this multi-talented brother, is a poet, songwriter, musician, recording artist, as well as a painter. Whew! And he does it all so well. On top of all that talent, he is a single father. He allowed me to place him in front of my camera to share his story of moving back HOME to Atlanta from NYC.
African American History is American History. The new documentary movie HOME: THE GREAT MIGRATION OF THE 21st CENTURY is about history-in-making, and it tells the story about African Americans moving en masse, migrating to the South. It is a trend that began at the end of the 20th century, and it is continuing through the 21st century. Told through the lens of independent filmmaker NAIMAH FULLER.
