"EVERY MOTHER'S SON brilliantly illustrates the capacity human beings have to overcome our pain by bearing witness, by finding the power to speak out against police violence and misconduct a masterpiece of contemporary documentary filmmaking. "
Manning Marable
Director, Columbia University's Center for Contemporary Black History

"Gold and Anderson have given teachers of Women's Studies, Race and Ethnic Studies and Criminal Justice a precious tool for inspiring our students in a harshly conservative climate.  This is one of the most brilliant and unforgettable documentaries I have seen in these dark days."
Rosalind Petchesky
Professor of Political Science, Hunter College

"EVERY MOTHER'S SON achieves remarkable intimacy and depth around a controversial topic, and helps us to wrestle with this important issue. A must see! "
Pamela Groves
Youth Services Librarian, Princeton Public Library

"The courage and dignity with which the mothers transcend their personal tragedies to pursue justice is moving and inspiring.  The film eloquently makes the point that change is made by regular people working together and supporting each other. It will be an essential teaching tool in academic and community settings. Despite the sadness of the situations and the outrageous behavior of the police and the public officials, the film gives us hope."
Marlene Fried, Professor
Civil Liberties and Public Policy Program
Hampshire College
