“The Melanin Code”, a highly anticipated documentary that takes a deep dive into how melanated people can organize to create generational wealth, will premiere on March 31, 2018 in Orlando, Florida. It will also be released on DVD (Pre Order NOW and get FREE SHIPPING) and for streaming on that day. Marcus and Murepha Small, pride themselves for creating high-quality, original and unconventional content.
The husband and wife duo have developed, produced, and edited a portfolio of work that includes music videos, commercials, and unscripted reality TV, such as Lifetime TV’s Bringing Up Ballers. The Melanin Code is the first of its kind for feature-length films and the first of this type of project for the Small’s and Domino Effect Productions, which they founded in 2009.
The documentary follows the format of Neely Fuller’s guidebook for “thinking, speaking, and acting in a manner that helps to eliminate Racism and helps to establish justice.” How is it possible to thrive when history has shown that for over 300 years, where there have been steps taken to divide melanated people mentally? The answer is simple. We need to start over from scratch and go back to the basics. We need a Code of Conduct. We need an Instructional Video. Yes, an Instructional Video that covers all areas of activity:
This is a “Solutions-Based” film. The diverse cast of business owners, financial experts, religious figures, well-known activists, educators, politicians and even a retired member of the police force will identify the problems within our race and racism, and will present solutions.
The Melanin Code will also decode hidden actions and keywords from the dominant society that are used to demean us.
All other ethnic groups have a code they abide by to get things accomplished. Let’s establish ours.
