Documentary Currently In Production

Before The Memories Fade, Voices from the Civil Rights Movement

Plumgood Productions is currently in production on the documentary film, "Before the Memories Fade, Voices from the Civil Rights Movement,” written and directed by documentarian Keith B. Plummer.

The film brings together a series of first-hand accounts from icons of the Civil Rights Movement. of the 1950s and 60s. It also focuses on some of the lesser known stories from various “foot-soldiers” of the movement who tell of their involvement. These interviews contain unique insights of this period of epic change in American society.

Plummer is currently traveling throughout the United States, gathering interviews and learning the stories told by these brave Americans.

The feature length film is being shot in High Definition and will be completed Fall 2010.

Restoring Honor, The Case of Chaplain Plummer

I have been getting a lot of interest in my Chaplain Plummer documentary lately so I am providing purchasing information and the synopsis on this blog. It was a 2006 Telly Award (Silver) Winner, 2006 Aurora Award (Platinum) Winner, and an Official Selection of the 2006 Pan African Film Festival. This movie was produced under my production company's former name.

The film tells the story of Henry Vinton Plummer a Maryland slave who was appointed the first African American Chaplain in the regular Army. Chaplain Plummer’s appointment was equivalent to the rank of Captain and, as to be expected at that time in American history, created internal conflict within the Army’s white officer ranks. This strife, in combination with a disgruntled African American enlisted man’s questionable accusations, led Chaplain Plummerto face the charge of “Conduct Unbecoming an Officer and a Gentleman.” After a suspect court martial, Chaplain Plummer was dishonorably discharged in 1894.

Over one hundred years later, the film recounts the dedicated efforts of The Committee to Clear Chaplain Plummer, which is led by Committee President Reverend L. Jerome Fowler, who is also Chaplain Plummer’s great nephew. Composed of family, clergy, historians, scholars, and retired military personnel, The Committee waged a four-year legal and PR campaign to convince the Army to reinstate Chaplain Plummer and clear his name. The Committee worked tirelessly to research the case and garner support from public leaders and noted officials including Maryland Governor Robert Ehrlich and the Maryland House and Senate.

All filming occurred in Maryland. The DVD version of the film was completed in May 2005 and runs 43 minutes.
