The co-founder of a celebrated Louisville drum corps passes the torch to the next generation.

The film screened at DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
For 30 years, the indefatigable Nardie White has offered a path to empowerment for African-American youth in Louisville KY through his River City Drum Corps. White has dedicated his life to teaching communities about their Pan-African roots, but with retirement approaching, he must train his successor. Set against the backdrop of the American South and featuring glorious drum battles, this uplifting film is a timely reminder of the incredible change one person can create.
