The gripping drama The 24th, directed by Oscar-winning screenwriter Kevin Willmott (BlacKkKlansman; Da 5 Bloods) tells the incredibly powerful and timely true story of the all-black Twenty-Fourth United States Infantry Regiment, and the Houston Riot of 1917.  The Houston Riot was a mutiny by 156 African American soldiers in response to the brutal violence and abuse at the hands of Houston police officers. The riot, which lasted two hours, led to the death of nine civilians, four policemen and two soldiers and resulted in the largest murder trial in history, which sentenced a total of nineteen men to execution, and forty-one men to life sentences.   Starring Trai Byers (Selma), Bashir Salahuddin (Marriage Story), Aja Naomi King (The Upside) and Thomas Haden Church (Sideways). (Dir. by Kevin Willmott, 2020, USA, 113 mins., Not Rated)
