San Francisco-based director Ivan Cash tells the story of a third-generation sharecropper named Jay Allen Glaspy. A descendant of slaves, Glaspy was ‘born in the cotton fields’ and worked in them until he got married at the age of 19 and set out for New Jersey. While Glaspy’s continued to face racial prejudice throughout his life, his story is one of unwavering devotion in the face of adversity and hope for the future.
