Executive Producer for From the Rough Michael J. Critelli has posted an update on the film’s release today on their Facebook page.
Following the film’s Indiegogo campaign, From the Rough will be released to select US theatres in early 2014, with both a DVD and digital release to follow in May, coinciding with the 60th anniversary of the 1954 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Brown vs. Board of Education.
Today, on the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington, we are proud to kick-off our marketing campaign for From the Rough as we prepare for our 2014 release date.
From the Rough will premier on October 24 during a special event at Tennessee State University in Nashville for the historic inauguration of Dr. Glenda Baskin Glover the first full-time female president of the 100-year-old institution.
From the Rough will be released in select theaters nationwide in early 2014 and will be available in both DVD and digital video formats to commemorate the 60th anniversary of another civil rights milestone, the 1954 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Brown vs. Board of Education, in May 2014.
We want to celebrate the pioneers of civil rights and equal opportunity, but we also want to honor unheralded individuals like Coach Starks and institutions like Tennessee State University and the other Historically Black Colleges and Universities who have made a huge difference in the lives of those they touched through a relentless focus on diversity and inclusion, regardless of race, gender, or national origin.
