Produced, directed and written by Tod Lending, Legacy is the unprecedented portrait of an African-American family that dramatically captures their successes and failures as they struggle to overcome the devastating effects of poverty, welfare, and community violence. For four generations the Collins family has depended on welfare and lived in Chicago's Henry Horner Homes, one of the most dangerous housing projects in America. Through the powerful voices of three generations of African-American women, Legacy tells the story of a mother, two daughters, and a grand daughter who are struggling to break free from poverty, welfare, drug addiction and the violence in their community.
This compelling and uplifting story reveals the complexities of poverty, welfare, drug abuse, and human resilience from an African-American perspective.
