Several years ago, a limited edition DVD of Young's award-winning documentary, Change in the Wind, quickly sold out and became an overnight collector's item.  

Now, the remarkable film has been remastered and is finally available again

"A probing new look at an unlikely relationship."
- Richard Eldredge, Atlanta Magazine

It's the little known, true story of Margaret Mitchell and Benjamin E. Mays, two people who lived in the same place, at the same time... but in very different worlds.

The story is brought to life through the voice talent of a remarkable cast, led by Academy Award-winning actress Joanne Woodward, as Margaret Mitchell. 

David Owelow, who reads the Benjamin Mays in the documentary, notably portrayed Martin Luther King Jr. in the motion picture, "Selma," directed by Ava DuVernay.

She was white. He was black.

She had written a Pulitzer-prizewinning novel criticized for perpetuating racial stereotypes. He was one of the fiercest enemies of racism and laid the ground work for the Civil Rights movement in America.

Yet, for nearly a decade, the most famous author in the South corresponded -- secretly -- with the legendary president of Morehouse College... and eventually became one of the most important financial supporters of the traditionally black school.

Anonymously, Margaret Mitchell provided Dr. Benjamin E. Mays with funds to pay for the medical educations of dozens of promising African American men -- a story which slowly came to light decades later and was never fully been told -- until now.

While assisting Ambassador Young with "Change in the Wind," researchers at the University of Georgia (where Mitchell's papers are stored in a restricted collection) discovered previously unknown letters which fill in important gaps and explain the author's evolving view on racial disparity in Georgia and the South.

"Should be viewed by any and all who think racial conflict, or reconciliation,
is alternatively simple, or simply impossible.
An inspiring story."
