The November/December issue of the Canadian magazine Faith Today features an article about All God’s Children. Journalist Debra Fieguth, who had already reported on the abuse that took place at the Mamou Alliance Academy when the story first broke, interviewed Mamou alum Beverly Shellrude-Thompson for the article and gave an excellent recap of the film and our vision.
For Canadian Beverly Shellrude Thompson, participating in the project was both difficult and helpful. “One of the things that has been my mantra is that the story needs to be told, that there’s healing in telling the story,” she said from her home in Burlington, Ont. “I’ve always carried in my head a deep shroud of secrecy that allowed both the pain and the system to go on.”
