The Argenta Film Series Presents Academy Award Winner UNDEFEATED, Febuary 21st, 7p.m., Argenta Community Theater with special guest Bill Courtney, coach of the Manassas Tigers football team.

Set against the backdrop of a high school football season, Dan Lindsay and T.J. Martin’s documentary UNDEFEATED, winner of the Academy Award® for Best Documentary Feature, is an intimate chronicle of three underprivileged student-athletes from inner-city Memphis and the volunteer coach trying to help them beat the odds on and off the field.

Founded in 1899, Manassas High School in North Memphis has never seen its football team, the Tigers, win a playoff game. In recent decades, the last-place Tigers had gone so far as to sell its regular season games to rival schools looking to chalk up an easy win.

New employment firm helps offenders, local businesses

New employment firm helps offenders, local businesses

Terry Williams has a love for former prison inmates. She believes in them so much that, in an economy that is less than robust, she just launched an employment firm – Little Rock-based Ramoth, Inc. – to help recently released Arkansas and Louisiana inmates find jobs.

Though it’s a unique concept, Williams said she doesn’t consider it a risk.

That’s because when it comes to ex-inmates, Williams is an expert. The daughter of a police officer and wife of the City of Maumelle, Ark.’s police chief, she has decades of experience working as the director of faith-based halfway houses for federal inmates called City of Faith. Based in Louisiana and Little Rock, Williams’ programs have put thousands of former federal prisoners to work – successfully.  Now she is hoping to help state-level offenders find jobs.
