Quakertown, USA, a dramatic, two-part documentary series chronicling the forced removal and relocation of a thriving community of more than 400 residents in Denton, Texas, will begin production this fall, the Denton Black Film Festival Institute and Southroad Pictures announced today.

The jointly produced series, against the backdrop of early 20th century Texas, will tell the story of Quakertown representing a multi-generational tragedy impacting the families who lost their homes, their land, and their livelihoods, but the human element leans in toward stories of recovery and resiliency from these stunning acts of indifference and cruelty.

The Denton Black Film Festival Institute received $250,000 from the city of Denton toward the production of this documentary series. A GoFundMe campaign has been launched to raise the additional funds needed to produce the series.

“We believe that the Quakertown story can become a lighthouse of illumination for the entire country,” said Linda Eaddy, film programming director, Denton Black Film Festival. 

Filming of the series Quakertown, USA will begin this winter for an anticipated release in late 2024. The series will be created by veteran filmmakers King Hollis and Lindell Singleton, the team who brought the acclaimed historical documentary about the 1936 Texas centennial, “Rising: The Hall of Negro Life,” to PBS earlier this year and their film, “Echoes from the Hill,” slated for release this Fall.

Executive Producer King Hollis said, “I am delighted to work on a series about my hometown, where I spent my summers and where my family resides. It’s a personal story. Lindell and I are pleased to continue our work on these essential historical documentary series.”

About the Denton Black Film Festival Institute

The institute evolved from the Denton Black Film Festival (DBFF) to provide a platform to serve Black creatives of all backgrounds. The activities and events are open to ALL filmmakers, however, because of historical exclusion and limited participation in the film industry, we recognize a special need for support for those of the African and Black Diaspora. The Film Festival is an annual cultural event, featuring the works of seasoned and emerging filmmakers, creatives from around the country and talented college students, musicians, artists and spoken word poets. Held each January, thousands attend the celebration of storytelling in various art forms, which takes place in various venues. The next festival is slated for January 24-28, 2024, in person and extended virtually from January 28 to February 5. Website:

Driving Force Action Launches Campaign to Educate Virginia Voters on Repealing the Commonwealth’s Internal Combustion Engine Ban

Driving Force Action (DFA), a nationwide alliance of gearheads, car enthusiasts, and automotive small businesses, launched a new campaign in Virginia today aimed at educating voters about the importance of repealing the state's internal combustion engine (ICE) ban. DFA's statewide campaign will inform Virginia voters about the importance of selecting statehouse candidates committed to rolling back the ICE ban legislation passed in 2021. The campaign comes as Governor Glenn Youngkin has pledged to repeal the ban, setting the stage for a crucial policy shift in the state that returns power to voters in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

The Virginia ICE ban, enacted in 2021, linked the state's emission standards to those of California, effectively adopting California's burdensome rules banning the sale of new gasoline-powered cars by 2035. DFA's Virginia campaign will highlight the critical need for Virginians to have a say in their state's automotive policies rather than allowing California bureaucrats to dictate their future.

"Virginians deserve the right to determine their own automotive future," said DFA spokesperson Riley Ploch. "By linking Virginia's emission standards to California's, we are essentially allowing another state to make decisions that negatively impact Virginia's economy, jobs, and personal choices. That's unacceptable and we're encouraging voters to take action at the ballot box."

The campaign will focus its efforts on key Senate districts across Virginia and urge voters to support candidates who, if elected to the state legislature, are fully committed to Governor Youngkin's commitment to repeal the ICE ban. By targeting these districts, DFA aims to ensure that voters are well-informed about the potential consequences of the ICE ban and the importance of electing legislators who prioritize the interests of Commonwealth citizens over those of unelected California bureaucrats.

DFA plans to engage and inform Virginia voters through grassroots outreach, digital and traditional advertising, community events, and social media campaigns. These efforts will emphasize the automotive industry's vital role in the state's economy and the potential for job loss and economic impact if the ICE ban remains in place.

The campaign's central message, "Why are we allowing California bureaucrats to make rules for Virginia?" will encourage voters to consider the implications of ceding Virginia's legislative independence to California bureaucrats more than 2,500 miles away from Virginia voters.

For more information about the Driving Force Action campaign and its efforts to roll back the ICE ban in Virginia, please visit or contact DFA spokesperson Riley Ploch at [email protected].

Driving Force Action is a project of the Specialty Equipment Marketers Association (SEMA), a trade association that represents the $52.8 billion specialty automotive aftermarket industry. The specialty automotive aftermarket creates over 24,000 jobs in the Commonwealth and contributes $373 million in state and local taxes. Founded in 1963, SEMA has a diverse membership of manufacturers, distributors, retailers, publishing companies, auto restorers, street rod builders, restylers, car clubs, race teams, and more.
