Watch a gripping doc on a Grenada activist with the filmmaker

"The House on Coco Road" is a portrait of Fannie Haughton, an activist and teacher who moves her children from California in 1983 to participate in Grenada’s Afro-centric Socialist Revolution — only to find her family in harm’s way of a U.S. military invasion. Watch the movie and then talk with director Damani Baker.
