The two women change each other’s lives and perspectives. “Illegal Rose” explores respect, decency and kindness through two people of different generations, ages, races and legal status, as they navigate their choices and the consequences.  “Olympic Pride, American Prejudice” tells the story of the 18 African Americans who defied Adolf Hitler and Jim Crow to win hearts and medals at the 1936 Summer Olympic Games in Berlin.
