In making “Chosen By God,” the filmmakers produced an invaluable tool for understanding the history of Black leaders prior to the Mayflower, but another key impetus for making the film was to inspire Black youth to achieve personally and professionally, and to educate greater society on minority leadership and their contributions to the evolution of civilization.
Along with the DVD, authentic replicas of the only Pharaoh to defend Hezekiah and the Hebrew people against their enemies are available for purchase through the film’s official website, www.chosenbygodthemovie.com.
