“Resurrecting Love” is the independent narrative documentary film about race, reparations, and reconciliation told through the lens of a small East Texas mixed community near the Louisiana border. The African American members of this community found themselves locked out of their nearly 200-year old ancestral burial ground named Love as part of the hidden backlash to 1960’s Civil Rights movement. It is based on the 2007 book Love Cemetery, Unburying the Secret History of Slaves, written by China Galland.
