(New York, New York – May, 2022) The International Screenwriters’ Association announced on Monday that Gloria Browne-Marshall’s screenplay “Sergeant Freeman” has been awarded the 2022 Emerging Screenwriters Action/Adventure Genre Winner.
In “Sergeant Freeman,” African-American Sergeant Stella Freeman has taken on a military mission of a lifetime when her college-bound daughter Keisha goes missing. A single mom and widow, Freeman’s search to find her child leads to White supremacists plotting a race war from a rural Pennsylvania town.
“Sergeant Freeman” will catch the imagination and emotion of any parent that has to fight to save their children, while remaining a tense thriller that exposes the theater-goer to the frightening real-world of America’s domestic terrorist in a battle between good and evil.
“Thank you to the International Screenwriters’ Association for this great honor,” Browne-Marshall, said. “I know this script resonates with parents and families especially in our country that is so divided by race.”
Gloria J. Browne-Marshall is a writer, civil rights attorney, playwright, professor of Constitutional Law. She is the author of such award-winning books as “She Took Justice – The Black Woman, Law and Power,” “The Voting Rights War” and the stage plays “Dreams of Emmett Till” and “SHOT: Caught a Soul.” Browne-Marshall is a Pulitzer Center grantee, member of the Book Project at Lighthouse Writers Workshop, National Association of Black Journalists, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., ASALH, Society of Professional Journalists, Drum Majors for Justice at JCSTS, and the National Press Club.
