Black History Month Film Festival American Violet

This film is a fact-based account of a young African-American mother of four that was unjustly arrested in a racially motivated drug sweep by a Texas County District Attorney. Even though Dee has no prior drug record and no drugs were found on her in the raid or any subsequent searches, she is offered a choice: plead guilty and go home as a convicted felon or remain in prison and fight the charges, thus jeopardizing her custody and risking a long prison sentence for 18-24 years. Despite the urgings of her family and friends she chooses to fight the district attorney.
