Location Scouting for No Lies Told Then in Harlem: Walking in the Characters’ Shoes

Updated: Oct 29, 2021

Torri Oats – August 17, 2015


There was no thought given to the date, August 9, when my director and I decided to meet for our first day of location scouting.  It wasn’t until the day came that I realized its significance.  One year ago on that day, Michael Brown was murdered.  Two years ago on that day, my grandmother died.  I wanted to cancel because everything felt so heavy, but the director and I planned this weeks ago, so it had to be done.
