The Cost of Living written by Alma Schofield and directed by Kimberly Hébert. Feedback from Loy A. Webb.

In the year 1891, Ida B. Wells, a free black business owner from Memphis, TN, has embarked on an anti-lynching crusade after a traumatic event inspires the young journalist to take action. As she uses her voice and her resources to expose the atrocities of the south in the days following emancipation, she learns that speaking out in the name of justice can have dire and unexpected consequences, not only for herself, but also for the people that matter most to her. 

Featuring Kelly Jenrette, Bechir Sylvain, Yvette Cason, Maurice Demus, Leonard A. Thomas, Jonah Wharton, Rod McLachlan, Aliyah Muhammad, and Nekia Renee.
