    Hello my name is Alison Mills Newman. I am the wife of the documentarian Francisco Newman,who produced and directed Staggerlee a conversation with Bobby Seale. I would like to do a remembrance of the great work that Francisco left behind with his cinematographer who he dearly loved Allen Willis. Francisco also produced and directed an award winning independent feature film titled Virgin Again,a modern day version of a loving kind black Jesus.
