Gone Too Soon: America’s Missing Black Men

A writer travels back to her hometown, Alton, Illinois, 17 miles north of Ferguson, Mo., to examine the impact that the early death of black men has on families and communities. Friends, relatives and members of the community describe their lives after the deaths of the community's black civic leaders, business owners  and promising youth and how their legacies still resonate today.

Gone Too Soon is in need of funding to complete filming, editing and pursue distribution channels. Contact Shawn at or call 312-371-6260.
