Doug Harris' 90-minute documentary about the life of acclaimed Washington DC sculptor Uzikee Nelson.  The film blends history, education, arts & culture, and activism into a highly charged story about the retired University of District of Columbia engineering professor.

The story reveals Nelson's family history of escaping slavery through the Underground Railroad from Virginia to Toronto, Canada.  Uzikee's loud voice and afro-centric public art sculptures over the years have impacted people and communities around the District of Columbia area.
