UNSPOKEN explores the racial divide in America, through the experiences of one small southern
Monroe, Georgia resident and filmmaker Stephanie Calabrese offers an insider’s perspective
and an intimate journey that digs deep into the roots of this divide entrenched by the 1946 Moores
Ford Lynching, the last mass lynching in the U.S., and its ongoing impact on the community. The
film uncovers buried truths and sheds light on the secrecy that still surrounds this tragic event and
the continued pursuit of justice, as well as the ongoing impact of segregation and the integration of
schools and society in Monroe, Georgia. By bringing these issues to the surface, UNSPOKEN aims to inspire dialog focused on race relations, divisions, and opportunities for reconciliation in hometowns across America.
“History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.”
— DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. (1959)
