Sunday Discussion: Out North: 37208 Fights Back

Welcome to Sunday Discussion. Each week, this post will feature a serious topic that needs to be featured and talked about. You can “discuss” it on your own social media networks as comments are banned here on Geek Alabama.

While shooting their brand campaign “It Starts Here” in Nashville last summer, Fiverr learned local zip code 37208 has the highest incarceration rate in the US. To outsiders, it’s a stat that defines the neighborhood. To residents, it’s a community that’s been under attack for years.

We saw an opportunity to tell a more in-depth story about the people of 37208. Out North is a 15-minute documentary that focuses on Gideon’s Army, a grassroots organization, and local individuals working to protect their community from police brutality, gentrification, and the school-to-prison pipeline.

As we celebrate Black History Month, we hope you’ll take a few minutes to watch Out North.
