UNLEARNING
OF US

Drusilla
Talley-Williams

holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s in Human Resources and has spent most of her life as an entrepreneur and human resource consultant. She has a strong spiritual stance and believes that we are born to create, and if we’re not being creative and expressing ourselves, then we’re not living. It is art and film that she feels are some of the world’s greatest means of self-expression. She took screenwriting classes throughout the years, waiting for the right opportunity to dabble.

Inspiration for the film: When the Black Lives Matter Movement became the center of a global conversation, even taking over the devastation of the COVID19 pandemic 24-hour news cycle, she was spiritually moved and could not resist the chance to capture the essence of what will be one of America’s most devastating times in history.

Dru wanted to create something historic that would capture the pain of everyday people in the past and the moment but also that would raise our level of personal awareness and lead to the healing of a people, maybe a country, and perhaps, over time, even a universe.
