Canada Lee, Native Son is a feature-length documentary that tells the inspiring story of one of the 20th century’s greatest yet forgotten heroes. Canada Lee was a pioneering African American athlete, musician, actor, theater producer and activist who poured his talent into fighting for racial and economic equality. His uncompromising stance prompted the U.S. Government to label him a Communist, destroying his reputation and career. Broken-hearted and impoverished, Lee died at the age of 45 from kidney disease. Film is in pre-production.
