Our Vision

The Lincoln Special’s purpose is to bring a renewed interest and conversation to President Abraham Lincoln’s legacy on racism. Utilizing the most powerful tool in modern civilization for communicating ideas, our motion picture  Of Tears and Iron  will spark a renewed interest in the United States’ troubled past and become a guiding light for healing in grief and mental health.

Purpose One: to bring Lincoln’s extraordinary story to underserved and indigent regions of the United States, by giving people of all ages the unique chance to immerse themselves in the societal aftermath of Lincoln’s assassination. We will utilize our motion picture  Of Tears and Iron  as the centerpiece for The Lincoln Special.

Purpose Two: To connect  Of Tears and Iron  viewers to mental health resources in their local areas. With the excitement and buzz of a polished and professional motion picture, we dovetail on that enthusiasm to educate audiences about modern mental health options for coping with grief and loss. By citing the assassination of Lincoln, we want to empower audiences who wouldn’t otherwise know about the mental health resources available to them.
