With SOUTHERN SHADES OF BLUE, filmed in Moore County, NC, the Southern small-town, left-leaning voice is highlighted.
While Southern values are often associated with only conservatives and conservative values, this interview series works to flip this narrative.
Showing there are many more left-leaning voters in your small town than you might think, the series shows how Southern and liberal values, such as kindness, family, and civil rights, overlap.
This interview series urges all small town progressives, liberals, and democrats to "come out of the closet" as it were politically, let your voice be known, and make sure your vote is counted.
Project Note: These videos were filmed in the Fall of 2019, pre-Covid, pre-the murder of George Floyd by police. SOUTHERN SHADES OF BLUE stands with BIPOC in the fight against systemic racism and also urges everyone in the country to wear a mask.
