Change in the Wind

For nearly a decade, the most famous author in the South …
For nearly a decade, the most famous author in the South corresponded secretly with the legendary president of Morehouse College. She was white; he was black. She had written a Pulitzer-prizewinning novel criticized for perpetuating racial stereotypes, and he was one of racism's most fierce enemies. Yet, even in the era of "Jim Crow" and harsh segregation laws, Margaret Mitchell and Benjamin E. Mays forged an unlikely alliance and ultimately a friendship, that led her to become one of the most important financial supporters of the traditionally black school. Described as a Valentine from the film making team of Andrew Young and CB Hackworth, "Change in the Wind" is an entertaining, inspirational story, full of surprises and newly discovered information about two of the most influential figures of the 20th Century.

The Three Faces of Eve is a 1957 American mystery drama film presented in CinemaScope, based on the homonymous book about the life of Chris Costner Sizemore, which was written by psychiatrists Corbett H. Thigpen and Hervey M. Cleckley, who also helped write the screenplay. Chris Costner Sizemore, also known as Eve White, was a woman they suggested might have dissociative identity disorder (then known as multiple personality disorder). Sizemore's identity was concealed in interviews about this film and was not revealed to the public until 1977. The film was directed by Nunnally Johnson.

Bud Corliss is an ambitious college student with big plans for himself and an heiress, Dorothy Kingship. But then Dorothy goes and gets herself pregnant. It's his child, too, of course; but this ruins everything. Her moralistic father will disown her and will certainly never accept him. It seems he's trapped. Bud's mother knows something is troubling her son, but he won't talk to her about it. All she knows is that Bud doesn't want to turn out like his father, with holes in his shoes. He doesn't have to worry. As his mother says, when he turns his mind to something, he does it. Unknown to her, his thoughts have turned to murder.
