Being the Diablo
Micky Mahaffey's daughter Stephanie has spent most of her life defending and justifying her father's choices. His quest for a deeper, yet more simple, spiritual life was constantly at odds with what Stephanie's family and friends expected from a father. But his search for himself could not be derailed by what people thought of him. His path led him from being a popular young preacher to living homeless, from being committed to a mental institution to finally dancing with Tarahumara Indians at the bottom of a remote canyon in Mexico's Sierra Madre. The documentary Being the Diablo retraces that path, illuminating the conflicts inherent.

Did you know?
Did you know that May 1-7 is Municipal Clerks Week? We extend appreciation to all Municipal Clerks for the services with which they provide their communities, especially Concord's City Clerk, Kim Deason.
 
Municipal Clerks serve as the professional link between citizens, local governing bodies, and agencies of government at other levels. There are many responsibilities of the Municipal Clerk that the public may take for granted; yet, if Clerks are negligent in their duties, then the smooth operation of our local government is greatly affected. The functions of the Clerk require a thorough knowledge of law procedure, administration, and interpersonal relations. To keep up with the constant changes in local government, many Clerks participate in continuing education and seminars and attending Clerk Institutes.
 
Deason has served as Concord’s City Clerk since 2008, and has been a member of IIMC and the NCAMC since 2006. She has been employed by the City of Concord since 2001.

On Stage at the Davis: Blood Done Sign My Name
Moving theatrical adaptation of Timothy Tyson’s book about the murder in the street of 23-year-old Dickie Marrow and the subsequent acquittal of the three suspects by an all-white jury despite the testimony of two black eye witnesses. The town's black community responded to the events with an uprising that destroyed downtown businesses and several tobacco warehouses holding millions of dollars in harvested crops. Acclaimed actor and playwright Mike Wiley plays all the roles, from the murdered to the murderers to 10-year-old Tyson as he skillfully engages the audience, repeatedly bringing unexpected elements of personal participation and discovery to the theatre experience. Gospel singer Mary D. Williams reinforces the action on stage with powerful and moving renditions of spirituals such as Oh, Freedom, Swing Low Sweet Chariot and Soon I Will Be Done. For more information, visit www.goingbarefoot.com.

Red Dirt Rising
Based on a true story, Red Dirt Rising is the story of love in the time of moonshine as three of stock car racing’s earliest heroes come of age to find escape from life's challenges on the track, ultimately shaping the future of their families --- and auto racing --- during the Fightin’ Forties. Jimmie Lewallen leads the pack as he struggles to extract himself from a life of poverty. Risky bootlegging and family farm obligations present early obstacles, but when he falls for a mysterious divorcee, Carrie James, he has to find a way to harmonize family and his love of racing. Jimmie encounters camaraderie and competition in his best friends Bill Blair and Fred Harb. Together, their antics lay the groundwork for one of the most lucrative sports in the world. As racing’s popularity rises, the boys witness tragedy and unscrupulous business practices until one man’s vision to legitimize the sport offers them the chance of a lifetime. The MPAA has not rated this film, but Modern Film Fest estimates it would be PG-13. For more information, visit www.reddirtrising.com.
