'Dear Johnny Reb'

Runtime: 8 minutes

Producers: Philip Scarborough

Directors: Philip Scarborough

Actors: 42 diverse voices from across Mississippi

This new short film is an expression of a thought and desire by Mississippi filmmaker Philip Scarborough along with 42 fellow Mississippians (not actors), who have crafted a letter to 42 of the more than 150 Confederate memorials found on courthouse lawns and public parks across their state. Scarborough explains why it’s time for the 'Johnny Reb' sentinels to stand down, while also noting the lack of memorials to the state's enslaved and indigenous peoples. The filmmaker will attend the screening.
