Press Release

Socially-Relevant Documentary Featuring Malcom-Jamal Warner
Debuts on DVD and North American VOD Platforms on June 19th
Los Angeles, CA – May 26, 2020 – Freestyle Digital Media, the digital film distribution division of Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios, has acquired U.S. rights to the socially-relevant documentary, WORD WARRIORS III. WORD WARRIORS III will be available to rent and own on DVD and North American digital HD internet, cable, and satellite platforms through Freestyle Digital Media on June 19, 2020.
WORD WARRIORS III A powerful social commentary that explores the circumstances of young African American men in today’s society, and explores the concept of using one’s words as a weapon of peace versus guns and violence. We examine the power of the mighty power of the WORD from the perspectives of a group of young Black men who are poets, as well as community activists, educators, and noted elder poets – aka THE WORD WARRIOR GRIOTS – who speak wisdom from a historical point of view and who have been instrumental figures in the Civil Rights Movement and in shaking the halls of injustice with their weapons of words. WORD WARRIORS III sounds the alarm calling for an end to the cyclical epidemic of self- destruction that has attacked our black boys and young black men.
Written by Takia “Tizzi” Green & Lyah Beth LeFlore, WORD WARRIORS III was directed by Jamal Joseph & Takia “Tizzi” Green and produced by Takia “Tizzi” Green, Lyah Beth LeFlore, Walter Thurmond III, Jamal Joseph, and Kevin J. Nelson.
Ideal for educational platforms such as high schools, colleges, youth programs and prisons,
WORD WARRIORS III boasts an impressive roster of talent featuring Malcolm Jamal Warner, Amiri Baraka, Daniel Beaty, Abiodun Oyewole, Ise Lyfe, Amina Baraka, Shirley Bradley LeFlore, Gregory Bell, Matthew Sutton, Eugene Redmond, and Treasure Redmond.
I am so honored for my company Majestic 9 Films partnering up with KO Creative and Freestyle Digital Media to bring WORD WARRIORS III to digital platforms,” said filmmaker Takia “Tizzi” Green. “I am grateful for the opportunity to share this powerful film and its instructive and healing message with viewers everywhere.”

The power and influence of education proved to be essential themes throughout DBFF, both in respect to the acknowledgement of history and the educational system itself. Word Warriors III, a documentary focused on the violence, crime, and poverty that many younger black men face, addressed the power of education in teaching those young men to use their words to deal with their adversities rather than falling into the systemic cycle of violence they often find themselves faced with.
