Today’s front page of the Akron Beacon Journal features an excellent article written by Collette Jenkins about the events depicted in All God’s Children. She did very thorough research and extensive interviews with Dianne Couts and David Darr, who gave some great quotes.

The article gives you a detailed overview of the story of the Mamou MKs – it’s almost like watching the film, just shorter. What goes beyond it is that the article also expresses some of the intention of the film. Dianne is quoted:

”Our intention is not to place blame or be angry or bash the church. Our hope is that by telling our story, it will help other people.”
